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.

How can I order a crane?

Are you intending to give away a luminous crane to a friend or buy one for yourself? I ship the cranes world wide.


You are invited to see the cranes in my studio in Potsdam. Alternatively I can show you the cranes via Skype or Zoom. I am also happy to answer your questions via email. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

How I build the cranes

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.
