Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper. Together, they form the word, “origami.” It is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations. Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding. Animals, birds, fish, geometric shapes, puppets, toys and masks are among the models that even very young children can learn to make in just one sitting.

“There are many possible directions to go from here. The current structure is folded only once. Like paper origami, it is possible to fold multiple times.”

“Creation out of nothing. I often say that origami is as close as you can get to that. It’s a piece of paper. Beyond that, you don’t need anything else.”
“Origami fed my need to understand things, to solve problems, and to be creative all at the same time.”
“Folding paper, aligning paper-does it really bring happiness? I think it does.”
“The secret to productivity in so many fields — and in origami — is letting dead people do your work for you.”
