458: Lang’s Flying Grasshopper = Jemima Cricket = WTF# 20

Posted by wonko on October 20, 2013 in wtf |

Sometimes I just need to fold, it is difficult to explain but I find great clarity in wrestling with complex geometry. We ALL have much to learn GRASSHOPPER.  Having bought Robert Lang’s “Origami Insects Volume 2” I thought it was high time to fold something from it. Lang’s models are great technical exercises, amazing manipulations […]

457: Happy Book (WTF#18)

Posted by wonko on October 2, 2013 in fantasy, wtf |

Fernando Gilgado is a legendary character folder, I have made many of his models, this one is a charmer: from one sheet of paper, you get 6 pages, a hard cover, arms, legs, a smile and eyes peeping over the top – neat So, as I mark furiously (having run out of the ability to […]

455: The White Keep

Posted by wonko on September 7, 2013 in domestic, wtf |

In days of old, when people of a township were threatened they retreated (as their last best hope) into the Keep – a heavily fortified “core” of the castle that was designed to withstand the most vigorous of attacks So I had this odd but interesting idea that it should, given the right size of […]

449: Chuka Ryu

Posted by wonko on August 18, 2013 in dinosaur, fantasy, reptile, wtf |

I stumbled across low res hand-drawn diagrams of a Ryu (Chinese dragon) and with a cursory glance said “why not give that a go”: Two weeks later and a whole bunch of improvising helped me realise that may not have been a wise choice but I have something that is at least based on Hoang Trung […]

446: Sunny’s Giraffe

Posted by wonko on July 15, 2013 in mammal, wtf |

Sunny’s birthday is coming up and she loves Giraffes: In browsing for a suitable model, I discovered a Tanteidan containing a Satoshi Kamiya giraffe that I had not folded, so it seems it was meant to be. I lke this model a lot – it is full of the essential giraffe features, economically uses the […]

WTF (What’s That Fold?) # 12

Posted by wonko on July 13, 2013 in wtf |

I have a stack of Lotka that is just waiting to be folded into beautiful things, so I looked for something that would be suitable as a WTF (because it has been a while and my procrastinator is running on full right now): Taking the largest square I could from a barely rectangular sheet, I […]

443: Gettin’ Crabby

Posted by wonko on June 23, 2013 in crustacean, wtf |

As a member of JOAS (Japanese Origami Society) a present arrives in the mail every now and then – the Tanteidan magazine. Although it is written in Japanese (and I can not read Japanese) there are lots of fun things to try, occasionally amazing models to try: Now I know I should be marking, but […]

437: Perambulator

Posted by wonko on March 17, 2013 in domestic, vehicle, wtf |

When I first saw photos of this model, I could not believe it was folded from a single sheet, without cuts, folds only: In case you were wondering, this was WTF (What’s That Fold?) # 8. I was determined to give it a go. Noticing it was made from hundreds of pleats, and given the […]

WTF (What’s That Fold?) # 8

Posted by wonko on March 16, 2013 in wtf |

I saw this AMAZING design, and figured it could not possibly be made out of ONE SQUARE without cuts, or glue and became determined to try and make it for myself: I found a crease pattern but little else to go by, so sort of wrestled the initial creases into place as best I could.



436: Sydney Opera House

Posted by wonko on March 10, 2013 in domestic, wtf |

Anyone who knows me understands my fascination with the Sydney Opera House, as a kid I saw the sails of it being built: Set magnificently on Bennelong Point right in the heart of the harbour, it together with the Sydney Harbour Bridge (no, do not panic, I am not making that) are quintessential Australian icons. […]
