723: (173/365) Feathered Tsuru

Posted by wonko on June 22, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, Crease Pattern, Traditional |

Few would argue that the Tsuru (crane) is the quintessential origami figure. Everybody starts there, the form is so familiar and the skills necessary to fold it form the backbone of so many models: While I have tried many variations of this model, few compare to Riccardo Foschi’s “feathered Tsuru”, a glorious and complex variation […]

719: (169/365) Jason Ku’s Duck

Posted by wonko on June 18, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck, it probably is a duck: This is an intense little model that eats paper like few others. The body is heavy and shaping I found difficult because of the many layers.

709: (159/365) Satoshi Kamiya’s Tsuru Rose

Posted by wonko on June 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, geometry |

I am nothing if not determined at times. This  model has beaten me many times but, due to a perfect storm it seemed to just happen in my hands: This is Satoshi Kamiya’s “Tsuru Rose” – an odd but beautiful combination of a Kawasaki rose twist in the body segment of a traditional Tsuru.

684: (134/365) Wise Owl

Posted by wonko on May 14, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Cruising Fakebook, as you do, it is often that you stumble across interesting folds (well, in my circle of friends it is): This is “Owl” by¬†Angel Jacobo Figueroa Arriola. I spotted it as a photodiagram sequence in one of his galleries.

645: (95/365) Peacock

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

A model I had mastered as a child was the only Peacock I had seen folded until fairly recently: This is Edwin Corrie’s Peacock, a magic little model that makes a tight efficient little body out of one corner of the square leaving lots of paper for the fan-shaped tail.

641: (91/365) Sparrow

I recently was on holiday in regional Victoria, and have a few models as “catch-up”: Our holiday digs were near a lake, rich in bird life.

622: (72/365) Nesting

Posted by wonko on March 13, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Sometimes tending the nest is more important than what is happening elsewhere: This is Edwardo Clemente’s “Mother Bird” (I think that is what it is called, it is all in Spanish) and is a charming little bi-colour model that manages to tease a lovely flappy mother twitter bird, a pair of hungry chicks and a […]

588: (38/360) Sipho Mabona’s “Swallow”

Posted by wonko on February 7, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

When planning origami models that will be good for permanent display, locks and paper tension matter as a model will try to unfold itself: This genius design results in a fairly faithful swallow, the body is rounded, beak and head cleverly proportioned, tings and tail streamlined – it looks like it would fly.

582: (32/365) Flapping Bird wearing a Tsuru Costume

Posted by wonko on February 1, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Those of you familiar with a traditional crane (Tsuru) will notice this one is a little odd – that is because it is folded on top of/inside a flapping bird: This is an ingenious and complicated fold, for bi-colour paper that cleverly interweaves one model in the other. In the 3D photo below you can […]

578: (28/365) Happy Chinese Lunar New Year!

Posted by wonko on January 28, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, seasonal |

The Chinese Zodiac is rich with myth and legend, most cultures are full to the brim with such fancy. Chinese New year is based around the Lunar cycles, as such seem oddly placed to us westerners: Moon cakes, yum cha, char sui hanging in a chinese butcher’s window, the red of firecrackers, the noise and […]
