The piece is a life-sized Rose, folded by the master of roses himself.  Both Rose and Leaves are folded from “Tant” paper, a medium-weight paper with a very slight texture.

Good luck, bidders!

いらっしゃいませ!(Welcome!)

Welcome to Origami Caravan, a volunteer project supporting Japanese children affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.  (Read more about the project here.)

During this year’s World Origami Days celebration, from 24 Oct. to 11 Nov., we will be auctioning off original origami artwork (via eBay), donated by the artists themselves, in support of the project. Most auctions will last just one day, so don’t miss out!

And if you don’t want to bid, you can always contribute directly to the project via a direct donation – use the “Pay Now” button, right, to donate with PayPal.  We’ll also be selling Origami Caravan t-shirts and similar merchandise; we’ll post when the storefront is ready.
