The Sonya Bird Studio creates mobiles, greeting cards, earrings, and wall art featuring origami cranes. Working with fine Japanese Yuzen paper, upcycling maps, and vintage sheet music, we make peace cranes to use as gifts or as personal blessings.
In addition to making beautiful art, our goal is to create meaningful employment in a fun, peaceful, and productive environment. As we fold each crane, we are particpating in a tradition and a movement toward peace and good will.
All of our items are made in Columbia, Missouri. You can find Sonya Bird origami in museum stores and galleries across the country. Check our store page for a retailer near you, or shop here, online. Wholesale buyers please contact us to request more information.
