This modular is made up of a bunch of bent arrow-shaped modules that slip together in 2 strands that then, rather satisfyingly, intertwine in much the same way as worms do when they are mating. Read more…
For purists, today marks the Spring Solstice, the “official” first day of spring (as per lunar cycles). As a member of OUSA, I was asked to participate in the “Annual Gift”, which consists of contributing a fold to be used as a Xmas tree decoration at The American Museum of Natural History. Apparently this has […]
Browsing through Eduardo Clemente’s “Papiroflexia”, I am amazed at how prolific a designer he was, and how many variations on models he published: This is Pez#3 – a rather handsome fish with lovely colour changes.
Having recently realised I had forgotten to re-subscribe to JOAS, I hurriedly did so then went on holidays, fully expecting the back-issues of Tanteidan to not arrive for weeks: Due to the miracles of Australia post (or was that Japanese post and a courier?) they arrived while I was away, fortunately kept dry in my […]
PART 2: THE LLAMA, LIVE FROM GOLDERS GREEN The llama is a quadruped which lives in big rivers like the Amazon. It has two ears, a heart, a forehead, and a beak for eating honey, but it is provided with fins for swimming. Llamas are bigger than frogs.

My citrus trees have a problem that starts about now in the season: Infestations of stinkbugs arrive and soon they are thick with debilitating sucking insects. It would not be so bad but I seem allergic to their secretions, making getting rid of them difficult. I have tried garlic, chilli spray, soapy water, using an […]

I am constantly amazed by the variety of techniques on display in Jun Maekawa’s designs, and this cube is no different: Based, in principle at least, on an acute windmill base, folded asymmetrically, it locks into a geometry that confuses the eye.
Now I know I am a few posts behind my fold a day schedule, and will eventually catch up, but thought I would start with this fold: Designed by Phạm Hoàng Tuấn, this charming little crab was presented on my Fakebook feed as a photodiagram sequence.
