Welcome to Midori’s RedBubble Gallery.
I am a Japanese-Born, Sydney based Contemporary artist & designer.

Little bit about my name…
When my parents decided to call their beautiful baby daughter “Midori”, the Japanese liqueur company hadn’t released their sweet green alcohol yet.
“Midori” is a common girl’s name in Japan. It means the colour green.
These days when I tell my name, people often say,
“Oh, cool!! The Green Liqueur!!!”
……………….Cheers!!!

“FOLD WITH LOVE – 1000 paper cranes”

The origami art exhibition “Fold with Love – 1000 paper cranes”
@Artspace Level 1, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick
22 Sept – 25 Nov 2011
“Fold with Love – 1000 paper cranes” is a project based on the Japanese legend of 1000 paper cranes. A Sydney-based Japanese artists, Mayu Kataoka and Midori Furze collected over 3000 paper cranes from many people to do an installation work on the hospital walls for the children at Sydney Children’s Hospital.
The project was the 2011 Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation art program ArtEx, in partnership with the Sydney Children’s Hospital School.
Each crane was folded by hand. The cranes came in many different sizes and many different kinds of paper folded by many different hands. Mayu and Midori believes that everyone can fold a paper crane – it is small and takes only a few minutes of their time, but 3000 of them together on the wall become a beautiful and a very powerful decoration.
Big thanks to their families, friends, people from Louis Vuitton, Sydney Children’s Hospital, the Hospital School, the Hospital Foudation, and everyone who contributed their time and folded paper cranes for the project.
