You may recognize polymer clay artist Judy Dunn for her pods or her shibori beads. Judy also has a passion for origami cranes.
For thousands of years the Japanese culture has treasured the crane as a symbol of honor and loyalty. This strong, graceful, beautiful bird mates for life and is extremely loyal to its partner.
The Japanese people feel that a person who folds 1,000 cranes will be granted his or her greatest wish. And Judy has a wish.
Judy’s polymer clay crane project is meant to recognize the loss of life in the Iraq war. It is a call for peace and she invites others to join her.
