Our local council library has a large glass display case that usually has things on show for a month. I cautiously asked one of the librarians if she thought some origami would interest patrons and she was very enthusiastic: There are around 200 models now on show at Holland Park Library for June and I am quite […]

326: Rough End First

Posted by wonko on November 22, 2011 in fruit, geometry |

All too often we feel like we are dealt the “rough end” of the pineapple: It is a curious expression that, I think at least, has something to do with inserting said pineapple in a pineapple-unfriendly place (makes my eyes water just thinking about it). This is a pleated structure designed by David Petty and […]

23: Fujimoto’s Apple

Posted by wonko on January 23, 2011 in fruit |

Quite taken with box pleating, I looked for a 3D piece of fruit and came across Fujimoto’s Apple – a real bastard of a pre-creasing exercise that coalesces into a delightfully organic shapeI was heard to exclaim WOW as the mess of twisted and tangled paper started to take shape.

6: Strawberry

Posted by wonko on January 7, 2011 in fruit |

Two views of the same berry, a nice variation of the time-tested and much tossed water bomb base.  Made with a square cut from half an A4 page, the smaller you make these the more realistic the shape. Quite happy with the hull (or calyx) although some of my more nerdier botanist friends will argue […]
