729: (179/365) A Whole Lotta Love

Posted by wonko on June 28, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Searching for daily folds, O came across an interesting 6 part modular cube that has much development potential:

each face features a colour changed heart but I imagine that with a little inventiveness you could fashion diamonds, spades etc, or other things as the basic module solves the problem of liberating colour-changed flaps rather nicely. Read more…

728: (178/365) Bumpy Octahedron

Posted by wonko on June 27, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So you take a 2×1 rectangle, fold it into 4×2 squares, then halve the squares: Then bring one pair of adjacent corners for each square, sink the dimply corner to lock, then repeat.

727: (177/365) Anibal Voyer’s Pegasus

Posted by wonko on June 26, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, mammal |

I am Pegasus, my name means “horse”: I have had this “must try someday” pile for ages, thought I would give it a go. The fold sequence is tricky and that was not helped but the fact that the square I started with was not .. actually … square.

726: (176/365) Star Block

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Sometimes a simple crease pattern leads to some interesting emergent geometry: This is Charles Santee’s “Star Block”, a 2 part modular that I found when trolling among Origami USA’s “The Fold” issue #22.

725: (175/365) 145 Point Sea Urchin

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

So I ended up scoring an unexpected free afternoon so decided that serious paper torture would be fun: Gridding then a breathtaking collapse took 4 hours to begin with. I knew I was up for a marathon fold to finish. Annoyingly I did not get this finished before fatigue took me – sometimes you get […]

724: (174/365) School Holidays!

Posted by wonko on June 23, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

After a brutally busy term, it is time to recharge, dance a little, be thankful for the good things that surround you: This is Jeremy Shafer’s “The Dancers” – a charming little pleating exercise that takes a square (in this case a 15cm Japanese foil square) and, via a clever set of collapses, isolates 2 […]

723: (173/365) Feathered Tsuru

Posted by wonko on June 22, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, Crease Pattern, Traditional |

Few would argue that the Tsuru (crane) is the quintessential origami figure. Everybody starts there, the form is so familiar and the skills necessary to fold it form the backbone of so many models: While I have tried many variations of this model, few compare to Riccardo Foschi’s “feathered Tsuru”, a glorious and complex variation […]

722: (172/365) Baby Dragon

Posted by wonko on June 21, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, dinosaur, fantasy |

Reporting is a beast of a thing, particularly semester reporting where we seem to joust with nit-picking grammar on parts of a report that parents do not read. Slaying the beast is particularly satisfying: This is Riccardo Foschi’s Baby Lizard Dragon … thing. I found the CP and a photo of the finished model and […]

721: (171/365) Kythera Dreaming

Posted by wonko on June 20, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, crustacean, geometry, nature |

A colleague recently spent an extended time back home on Kythera, a lovely island in Greece: Returning to work is never easy after such time away, but I can feel and understand her longing to return. This shell is meant to evoke dream memories of Kythera.

720: (170/365) Cylinder Twists

Posted by wonko on June 19, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

When you are sitting, you have a bunch of time to think. When you have cylindrical media on hand, you start to think about what you can do with it: Having previously dabbled in loo-roll faces, I began wondering if there was some geometric beauty in cylinder wrangling and happened across a scalable technique that […]
