Bottled Origami Miniatures:
Animals

(Last updated 2016/06/25)

 

Orders can be made via e-mail

 

 

 

Orange Fox - $17
 

A cute orange origami fox, hanging off a needline in a bottle, by Mui-Ling Teh. The yellow label at the bottom says "fox" in Japanese.

The label shown says "fox" in Japanese, but I can also substitute is with something else.

 

 

 

Orange Koi - $17
 

Swimming orange origami carps, hanging off a needles in bottles, by Mui-Ling Teh.

 (The tone of orange and patterns in the paper vary)

In Japanese, the word "koi" means carp, which also means "love". Therefore carps are symbolic of love and friendship in Japan. The kanji character on the left one refers to the carp; the one on the right says love.

 

 

 

Animals of the Chinese Zodiac
$17 each ($22 with string)

Each animal can be bought with or without string. The labels at the bottom are the animal names written in Japanese kanji (some of which maybe different from Chinese). But like any other bottle, you can personalize them as you wish (e.g. "Happy Easter!")

You can see some other example labels here.

Each person's associated animal is dependant on their year of birth, and the cycle repeats every twelve years:

A cute white origami kyuubi no kitsune (nine-tailed fox), hanging off a needline in a bottle, by Mui-Ling Teh. The yellow label at the bottom says "nine-tails" in Japanese. A cute orange origami kyuubi no kitsune (nine-tailed fox), hanging off a needline in a bottle, by Mui-Ling Teh. The yellow label at the bottom says "nine-tailed fox" in Japanese.

 

This is an adaptation of the ordinary fox model that I came up with. I can use labels that says "kyuubi" (九尾 - nine tails) or "kyuubi no kitsune" (九尾の狐 - nine-tailed fox) or any other custom label as you please or depending on an occasion.

I made the mouth open for the nine-tailed fox, however I can also keep it closed like the ordinary fox if desired.

See some of the labels I have here

 

 

 

Origami Bear holding a paper crane; with a black label - $50
 

A bear holding an origami paper crane in hope for the victims of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake

 

This is the model I donated for an auction to help the victims of the the earthquake disaster in Kumamoto, Japan. This item is not longer available, however I am happy to make a new similar model upon request.

  More animals are coming and I'm always happy to take requests!
