"Red String of Fate" makes a perfect Valentines Day gift, and is also very fitting as a wedding gift! Cards are also available here.

Each print has been printed on premium photo paper, which was then mounted onto a rigid, ˝-inch thick, flat MDF board finished with a black bevelled edge, then laminated with Artshield Laminate. A keyhole is milled in the back, so each print can be hung on a wall.
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" 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.

"Sailing Along the Lifeline" has been sold.
"Wish" is available for $128
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

Freedom - $500
Freedom was a concept I developed in 2010, and in 2014 I recreated a framed version if it. The creation of 'Freedom' was a very delicate process, as it involved folding out of cut squares with only a corner of those squares still attached to the paper. While folding the cranes I had to be very careful not to rip them off the paper; and with 8 cranes to fold, if anything ripped off towards completion, the work done previously would go to waste.
Even after completing all the cranes, there was still work to do, which involved modifying the frame. While it is not noticeable in photo, there is a space between the white paper and the black paper in the back to create a greater sense of depth.
A Small version is also available for $100
(Last updated 2014/10/03)
In my past few events, my tables/space have been mostly dominated by bottled origami pieces. In a small area however I would always also have a collection of assorted miniature pieces that I sell for between $1 - $3.
Among my bottled miniatures, my
spinning pinwheels have been one of the most popular. As such, I have decided to
start making some on their own. These are slightly bigger than my bottled ones
and they spin beautifully!
Plain paper pinwheels are
available for $4
Individual origami pieces and pinwheels can be delivered if desired, but bear in mind that I may charge for delivery on small purchases.
Most of these bottled origami miniatures come with messages inside of them. I can also make other custom messages upon request; hence these bottles are great gifts for any occasion, whether it is for a birthday, a holiday, celebration, farewell, encouragement, and more.
See labels that I have here.
Necklace strings can also be added to bottles for an additional $5.

By request only, black labels with bold white text can be made for an additional $0.50. These will not be available during live events unless a client makes prior arrangement to pick up their order during an event.
Along with bottled miniatures, I have sold individual pieces of basic origami models at slightly larger sizes in the past for as low as $1.50.
Feel free to contact me if you wish to purchase any individual piece of origami. You can see additional examples of miniature origami models I have made in the past here. I am open to creating something new as well.
