865: (315/365) 11/11/2017 Lest We Forget

Posted by wonko on November 11, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, seasonal |

The poppy has become a symbol of remembrance, reverence and honour: A humble flower capable of thriving in the harshest of conditions, flourishing under duress with a beautiful, if short-lived ephemeral flower. Something existential to learn here for all of us.

857: (307/365) Maekawa’s One Sheet Flower Stalk

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

Many origami designers have tried to pack lots of details into the one sheet. I have folded Brian Chan’s One sheet Rose many times but I like the simplicity of this flower, stem and leaves: Using some interesting box pleating and colour management make a rather nice simple flower atop a divided stem and pair […]

851: (301/365) Vale Vicky

Posted by wonko on October 28, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, seasonal |

People process loss in different ways. 10 years ago a friend lost her fight with cancer and I am still saddened by the loss of such a bright and affirming soul: While I could not bring myself to attend a memorial mass, none the less I still feel the loss. I chose to find solace […]

816: (266/365) Spring Solstice

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, seasonal |

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 […]

800: (250/365) Yara Yagi’s “Menaca”

Posted by wonko on September 7, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

800 new models … let that sink in … 800 things I had not folded before – wow, just wow: I was looking around, as I do, for a model to fold today, I noticed on Fakebook that Winnie Leung from The Sydney Origami Group shared this photo-diagrammed model.

799: (249/365) Turning over a New Leaf

Posted by wonko on September 6, 2017 in 365-2017, plant |

…shows you the underside of that leaf, really: This is Naomiki Sato’s “leaf”, a lovely green thing that is destined to be attached to stems holding up flowers.

794: (244/365) From little things, big things grow

Posted by wonko on September 1, 2017 in 365-2017, nature, plant |

September 1 is often trotted out as the first day of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere: Purists will argue that the spring equinox is not until the 21st of September, but with the climate as it is, it has felt like spring for weeks now in Brisbane.

791: (241/365) Flower Tessellation

Posted by wonko on August 29, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, flower, geometry |

Browsing a MiniNeo eZine that I follow, I noticed a rather interesting looking hexagonal flower and thought it worth a try: You triangle grid a hexagon into 16ths, then put a hex twist in the middle, then add the swing-back on petals and tidy up the tessellation to make a swirl.

790: (240/365) Monica’s Bunch

Posted by wonko on August 28, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, geometry |

Asked by a colleague whether I still do rose folding commissions, I lied and said “sure”, realising this was the opportunity to learn something new: Working my way through Naomiki Sato’s book “Rose”, I had never tried his “Simple Rose” until this point.

787: (237/365) Daffy Down Dilly

Posted by wonko on August 25, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, nature |

Today (August 25) is Daffodil Day, daffodils being the icon associated with cancer awareness and fundraising for an eventual cure. You can get involved, donate or buy badges and sponsored bunches of flowers to show your support: This seems to be a traditional model (sorry, I have yet to identify the designer) but is related […]
