What is 1000 paper cranes?

I love making paper cranes, and each time I make one, I realise there's a story behind it. So my challenge is to make 1000 paper cranes over the coming days, weeks, months, (years?) and write about each one...

Crane #859 - #999

Have you ever wondered what 141 cranes in a box looks like. I'd say something like this...

These are set aside for my next origami bombing mission, hopefully taking place in London with Chris from Up-cycle. Schedules have dictated that this hasn't been able to happen in 2011, but hopefully it'll go ahead in early 2012, combined with a bit of sociable crane making on the tube.


  1. I edit a poetry magazine in California. A poet living in London who's seen your cranes has sent me a poem about them. Do you have any black & white photo I might be able to use with the poem? She particularly mentions the cranes in a birdbath.


  2. Your blogs are totally worth giving time and energy.
