The Cranes

The crane sculptures are hand-made, numbered and unique pieces. They are operated with small light bulbs or LEDs using low voltage. I fold the cranes out of strong and water-resistant material which is optically similar to Japanese paper. The cranes vary in size between 18 and 80 cm.

The crane sits on a copper pipe. The base is made out of finely sanded fruitwood or softwood. All materials that I use have a living quality to them and will change color over time.

A selection of wood types used:

plum - yew - pear - apple - cherry - walnut
