633: (83/365) Froebel Star

Posted by wonko on March 24, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Currently, in Queensland, there is a project to weave one million stars:

This is a Froebel Star, one of the million forming around the state. Read more…

632: (82/365) Spiral Snail

Posted by wonko on March 23, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Inspired by the work of Tomoko Fuse, I began experimenting with a square and using most of it to do a spiral. Initially I tried even divisions but found a more logarithmic progression from wide to narrow worked best: Using alternating mountains and valleys, a lovely spiral emerged and there was enough paper to fashion […]

631: (81/365) Four Cubes

Posted by wonko on March 22, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Sometimes a modular is deceptively complex, this 6-part modular from David Mitchell is no exception: Four cubes, interwoven in evil ways has done my head in for days now, I simply could not (1) imagine the shape it was going to end up; and (2) make the modules connect in ways that made sense.

630: (80/365) Eastern Dragon

Posted by wonko on March 21, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur, fantasy |

The dragon is a favourite subject for origami designers – most have tried their hand at one: This is Joseph Wu’s “Eastern Dragon” – how can we tell it is anĀ eastern dragon? It has no wings and does not need them to fly. It is only us silly westerners that decided to rationalise the dragon […]

629: (79/365) Artefact

Posted by wonko on March 20, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I quite enjoy folding modulars – the way they combine to make a larger form can be fascinating and this module is no exception: This is Dave Mitchell’s “Artefact” module, it can be put together in 2’s and 6’s.

628: (78/365) Little Plane

Posted by wonko on March 19, 2017 in 365-2017, vehicle |

Another paper plane – this one a lot like a single propeller Cesna: An interesting fold, thankfully executed with thin paper (a sheet of purple hand-made washi from Daiso)

627: (77/365) Collapsible Cube

Posted by wonko on March 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Toys for people with ADHD are all the rage – people pay for things with switches, moving clicky bits and spinney things because, reasons: This paper toy continues to be an enigma. Made of 4 modules, it is a twisty cube that also folds flat in a myriad of ways that break your brain.

626: (76/365) Little Snail

Posted by wonko on March 17, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Spirals have most recently been explored by Tomoko Fuse, but lovely spiral shail shells have existed in traditional origami for a long while before that: This is Eduardo Clemente’s snail, well, one of them. As a bi-colour model it cleverly manages the 2 colours ensuring the soft slippy bit of the snail is one colour […]

625: (75/365) Mariposa

Posted by wonko on March 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I must admit to liking folding insects in Origami – something about the extreme paper wrangling necessary to separate out features from the sheet is a great challenge: This is Eduardo Clemente’s “Mariposa” or Butterfly. An interesting fold indeed.

624: (74/365) Babe

Posted by wonko on March 15, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is rare that with relatively few folds the essence of a 4 legged beastie is so well captured: This is a continuation of the exploration of Eduardo Clemente’s work, his simple pig, charming little critter it is.
