781: (231/365) Naomiki Sato’s First Pentagonal Rose

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

I am seriously attempting to perfect the “rose” form in Origami. In my mind, there is no better master of this flower than Naomiki Sato: I bought his book (and DVD) entitled “Rose” and am determined to work though the various forms presented therein. This is called his “first pentagonal rose” and I can see […]

747: (197/365) Root Veg

Posted by wonko on July 16, 2017 in 365-2017, plant |

Winter is for hearty food, stews and seasonal root veg: With such open food importing and trade however we see every vegetable and fruit available all year round. Peru grows my Asparagus, Venezuela exports my Fennel and China supplies my Carrots at the moment.

745: (195/365) Catalaya

Posted by wonko on July 14, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

Orchids are such extravagant structures – few more showy than a Catalaya: This cluster will be something else, but just for now it is beautiful all on it’s own.

Posted by wonko on July 1, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, Traditional |

Michael and Jane invited us to celebrate their wedding today: We were happy to attend a lovely service at the Chapel at my work (a workplace for both in times gone past). The bride was beautiful, the groom as well. Lovely service with a reception to follow later this afternoon.

671: (121/365) Winter is Coming

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

I want to pretend that we have a discernible Autumn in Brisbane, indeed there is a moderation of temperatures, but we lack the temperature drops and seasonal flora to clearly mark the change of season: Having been places that have deciduous trees, and seen the glorious colour changes in leaves from yellow to red and […]

651: (101/365) Naomiki Sato’s Sakura

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

On the the pleasures (there are many) of visiting Japan at the moment is the onset of spring, and the flowering of cherry blossom trees: I remember vividly the glorious show, in colours from deep red to white/lemon, trees around Kyoto and Miyajima being particularly lovely.

590: (40/360) Daisy

Posted by wonko on February 9, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, nature |

“Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do. I’m half crazy….”: There were fewer chilling cinematic moments than the last conscious moments of HAL, the conflicted computer in Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey. The slow disappearance of cognisance is so beautifully portrayed.

So I was on the phone to my mum, as you do, and she asked if I could make Scotch Thistles out of origami:

555: (5/365) Maple Leaf Bookmark

Posted by wonko on January 5, 2017 in 365-2017, plant, seasonal |

Naturally, I blame Canada, as any good Southparkian would: This is Inayoshi Hidehisa’s Maple Leaf chopstick holder but I rather think it works (at this scale at least) much better as a bookmark.

Orchid Shadowbox

Posted by wonko on November 30, 2016 in blarg, flower |

I love models by Robert Lang, I find I fold them when I need order, therapy, calm. This is a collection of his Orchids, described in his book “Origami Design Secrets”. Something about the mathematical elegance of this flower lends itself to careful modelling and pretty staging. I had a bunch of opalescent 6″ squares […]
