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 […]

Posted by wonko on December 26, 2011 in boxes |

It is Boxing Day, and I thought it appropriate to try a box I have had in my “must try” pile – David Brill’s Masu: A Masu is a traditional Japanese timber box that used to be used to measure rice or beans, these days it is used for sipping sake out of. This ingenious construction is […]

Come this time of year, we ALL engage in a sort of origami, with varying success and neatness – wrapping presents: This is Yami Yamauchi’s “Pandora’s Box” – a devilishly clever fold that makes a beautiful cube that once folded is near impossible to un-fold. The instructions suggest fold it part way, put something precious […]

287: Fuse Box (Small Flowers)

Posted by wonko on October 15, 2011 in boxes, geometry |

Tomoko Fuse is a genius in designing intricate boxes: this is called “Small Flowers” because of an incidental pattern the overlapping edges make, sort of looks like aflower. I made it in colour only because a monochrome version would not have been remarkable. The lid and the base are each comprised of 4 pieces of […]

280: Infinity Cubed

Posted by wonko on October 7, 2011 in boxes, geometry |

Now I got thinking about infinity, as you do, and that I could beat it by cubing it, then a modular idea struck – make an infinity out of cubes: So I began collecting business cards – white on the back, and performed 2 simple bends (and ONLY 2) per card – then explored ways […]

199: Lego Block

Posted by wonko on July 18, 2011 in boxes, geometry |

Now I like a good challenge, but this was a little beyond the pale: I have seen photos of this model less than half as big and I am buggered if I can work out how you could fold it that small as I struggled at this scale. A fascinating exercise in box pleating that […]

187: Spiral Box

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2011 in boxes |

Looking at the plethora of boxes I still have to fold, it is difficult to select just one. I chose this spiral box because the spiral on the lid is echoed in the construction of the bottom: A rectangular box (as opposed to square) that cleverly tucks away flaps inside itself to make a sturdy […]
