Upcoming Events and Original Art For Sale:

(Last updated 2014/07/25)

 

Explore original art I have available for sale, what I can make, and learn about upcoming events where I will be selling my art.

Orders can be made via e-mail

 

 

I have finally moved into the Arts Market (Queen St. E location)!

 

 

Not every origami model that I have ever created is available in store yet. Since I had just finished vending at a sidewalk sale lately, and am going to be busy looking after other things (including other events) until late July, I may not be able to do more here in a while, but I will have more eventually.

If there is a specific item that you want, and it is not in the store, I can make it and the shopkeeper save it for you.

You can see items I have available for sale further below.

In the meantime, here are some events taking place this month.

 

 

 

 

 

Upcoming Events:

If you wish to stay up to date on any of my upcoming events, feel free to send me an e-mail and let me know that you wish to be on my mailing list.
 

(I participate in these events through various organizations, hence any schedule/location changes, cancellations, or other unforeseen circumstances that may occur are beyond my control. I will always do my best to keep this page up to date when changes occur; and you can also be notified of any changes by subscribing to my mailing list.)

 

 

 

 

The Makers Market - August 2014

 

 

The next Makers Market will take place on August 2, 2014 at Crawford Bar on 718 College Street from 11am-6pm

This time I will by the big mirror on the brick wall.

Join the event here

 

During this event I will be selling the usual items, as well visitors are welcome to have free caramels!

 

 

I was given some milk caramels from Japan early this year, and I like to use the wrappers for making some of my miniatures, so feel free to come by and ask for a caramel, and remember to give me the wrappers!

These candies expire next month, so they have gotten a bit hard but are still eatable.

 

 

 

 

J-Town Sidewalk Sale

"Sunset with Blue Tress" by Mui-Ling Teh
 

Colour plays a fundamental role in "Sunset with Blue Trees" as the yellow and orange tones in the sky offers warmth. Complimentary to that, the cool blue trees offer a calm relaxing sensation, as it creates a setting like an oasis in a desert. Therefore, this image makes a nice addition to a room in any season; the sky can make the viewer feel warm even during the cold winter, and during the hot summer the blue trees lets the mind escape to a cool relaxing oasis.

"Red String of Fate" by Mui-Ling Teh
 

"Red String of Fate" is based on a Chinese myth that the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of men and women destined to be soul mates. This myth has also been adapted into other East Asian cultures.

Each heart was folded from a 15×15mm piece of paper, and the image was photographed with an Olympus FE-340.

"Wish" by Mui-Ling Teh
 

In the Japanese art of paper folding, the paper crane is a common symbol of peace and good luck. It is also believed that if one folds a thousand paper cranes, their wish would come true. Combining this concept with the western culture of making wishes while blowing dandelions, I created the piece called "Wish", depicting blown dandelion seeds as miniature paper cranes.

The paper crane dandelion is a straw with a bunch of miniature origami cranes at the end. I used my computer screen for the background, and the paper crane ‘seeds’ were taped to the screen. "Wish" was also photographed with an Olympus FE-340.

Origami

(Last updated  2014/07/23)

 

Bottled Miniatures:
 

Most of these bottled origami miniatures come with messages, but I can also make other custom messages upon request:

 

Miniature origami crane and red heart in bottles with labels "Dear Mom" and "I Love You"

Miniature origami crane and red heart in bottles with labels "Dear Mom" and "I Love You"


 

I have also done custom two bottle necklaces:

 

 

Prices of these custom necklaces vary depending on what is inside. You can expect them to be at least the sum of two models as necklaces, plus extra for the wiring. See below to see examples of some of my individual bottles and their prices.

Most of these range between $15-$25, with some being much higher.

 

 

Hearts with Neckties - $15 each

Like any bottle, these can come with any message of your choice

(The appearance and shade of pink of each folded cherry blossom will vary. In order to ensure customer satisfaction, I send of photos of requested items before delivering them.)

 

 

 

"Peace" (smaller version) and "Life is a Journey" - $40 each

(Or $35 each without the string/base)

 

Miniature origami crane and boat in bottles by Mui-Ling Teh with yellow labels "Peace" and "Life is a Journey" written at the bottom.

 

These bottles come with the messages shown, however they can also be personalized in various ways:

Miniature origami boat sailing along a needle in a bottle by Mui-Ling Teh, personalized with the name "Jack" written on the yellow base at the bottom.

"Life is Journey" makes a great gift for any person; whether it for someone who loves to go sailing, or one who has been through various life experiences. Each bottle comes with a stand labelled "Life is a Journey", however anyone is free to use the other side to personalize it as they like; whether to write their name, a message, the name of their favourite boat, and more.


*The sailboat is glued onto the needle, and I often sell these with the bases inside of the bottle for the customers to take out and set-up at home later. At any time, if you accidentally detach the sailboat from the pin, I would be willing to give you a free replacement as long as I an get back all the pieces of you first purchased piece. You may request a replacement via
e-mail. Free replacements will not be issued if there are pieces that are physically broken or damaged, though they may be replaced for a lower price. I will need to be able to pick up the original piece within the GTA.

 

Miniature white origami cranes by Mui-Ling Teh, hanging on a needles in a bottle; with yellow labels at the bottom containing handwritten personalized messages and wishes on them.

 

Each bottled crane comes with a rolled-up paper strip with the word "Peace" written on it. Anyone can however replace the paper with something more personalized, and wear it with them, or hang the bottle in a special place where they can look back at the message. Since the crane is a symbol of good luck believed to make a person's wish come true, it is also fitting to write a wish to insert into the bottle to wear or look at on a wall.
