551: (1/365) Mummy Star

Posted by wonko on January 1, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, seasonal |

When my sister in law went to Nepal, she found some rather charming Lokta paper, hand-made with block printed gold floral designs. She carefully transported it back with her for me to wrangle. I had a modular in mind and the orange Lokta seemed the obvious choice: This is Miyuki Kawamura’s Mummy Star, a startlingly […]

524: Happy Valentines Day

Posted by wonko on February 14, 2016 in blarg, boxes, flower, geometry, seasonal |

I find it fascinating that there are so many models and folding techniques I have yet to try. The “Magic Rose Cube” is a case in point – I am amazed I have never folded it: Such a beautiful little modular, 3 pieces the flower, 3 slightly different pieces the leaves, slots together into a […]

517: Darth Paper – The Fold Awakens

Posted by wonko on December 15, 2015 in fantasy, humanoid, scifi, seasonal |

I will admit it, I have been a Star Wars fan since it was possible to be one. I saw the original movies many times in the cinema DECADES before my kids thought it would be cool to do the same with the new ones: The original 3 movies were special (well, they WERE before […]

Decoration

Although I began folding paper when I was 11, I peaked at about 13 (back then, in my own mind) by mastering Jack Skillman’s “Jackstone”: I had bought Robert Harbin’s Origami book series, the model featured in book 2 at the back which meant it wqas hard. It seems the Jackstone was at the time […]

468: I am Pegasus, My Name Means Horse

Posted by wonko on February 3, 2014 in fantasy, mammal, seasonal |

I am old enough to remember when a folk singer named Ross Ryan released a campy song about flying horses, and given that is an ear-worm of a song and it has just turned “Year of the Horse” for Chinese New Year, I thought it was an omen on what next to fold: This is […]

464: Say it with Flowers

Posted by wonko on December 24, 2013 in flower, seasonal |

In our previous house I had a rose garden – I planted and maintained 42 rose bushes, lovingly collected cow poo, mulched, pruned and relentlessly sprayed them to combat the Queensland climate’s unsuitability for growing them. I also was a member of the Queensland Rose Society so occasionally displayed blooms at shows and in competitions, […]

417: Ornament

Posted by wonko on December 7, 2012 in geometry, seasonal |

I had a need, my brain was fried but I had to keep busy sooo… I was given some lovely Yuzen squares (15cm) and, because the papers well all different, so colourful I decided to try to fold, from memory the Jackstone – unsure if my fat clumsy fingers could manage the fold so tiny. I […]

347: Tree Topper

Posted by wonko on December 13, 2011 in humanoid, seasonal |

So I was putting up the tree again this year and remembered we had nothing to put atop it: I remembered an “angel” designed originally by Neal Elias, reworked by gabriel Vong that I had put in the “must try this sometime” pile, so set about folding it. A nice figurative angel, hands clasped in […]
