713: (163/365) Roman Diaz’s Goat

Posted by wonko on June 12, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

Scrumbling through my “must fold list” I came across a curious hand-drawn diagram set from Spain and decided to give it a whirl: After much torturing (I started with a 35cm square) the result is a rather lovely goat. I think this is my favourite farmyard animal so far – lovely proportions, fantastic modelling potential.

701: (151/365) Queenslander!

Posted by wonko on June 1, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, fantasy, wtf |

…a little known fact, up until the night of the day this fold was supposed to be folded (last night if I am honest, missed a day, catching up, sorry) I had NEVER watched a Rugby match. Ever: So I was over at a mates place, we were supposed to be playing a board game […]

692: (142/365) Wu’s Modular Chess Board

Posted by wonko on May 22, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, geometry |

Looking around for a chess board in origami was fun, there seem to be a few out there, including a few that use only 1 sheet of paper and a million creases to perform the necessary colour changes for the squares: I discovered I could not source paper large enough to make a playable chess […]

665: (115/365) The Last Post

Posted by wonko on April 25, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, domestic |

I am not sure what it is about the music, but “The Last Post” always gets to me: After visiting Gallipoli 2 years ago (nearly to the day), and the Canberra war memorial last year, this is never more true. The tune is haunting, desperately sad and intimately bound up with a remembrance of Australian and […]

652: (102/365) Sleep In

Posted by wonko on April 12, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, humanoid |

Now you are set to sleep in, for the first time in ages right? Your neighbour, bless him, decides this morning is the time to chainsaw and woodchip the hedgerow: As amusing as this sounds, this actually happened to me this morning. Coincidentally I had just completed Fernando Gilgado’s “Sleeping In” model – seems the universe […]

648: (98/365) Floral Vase

Posted by wonko on April 9, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, domestic |

It is rare that a simple bit of geometry is so lovely but this floral pot combines glorious proportion and an efficient use of the sheet: A simple(ish) twirl causes the vase shape. I must work out how to fold this without the pre-creasing scars as I think this would look beautiful in large format […]

614: (64/365) Brickwork Fireplace

Posted by wonko on March 5, 2017 in 365-2017, furniture, geometry |

Brickwork tessellations are a bit of work, but it is nice to see a model that uses the tessellation as the texture of another structure: This is Ichiro Kinoshita’s “Fireplace by Brickwork”, a torturous fold that requires a ton of pre-creasing and as the scale I chose (square cut from an A3 sheet), the final […]

540: Parliament

Posted by wonko on July 4, 2016 in blarg, domestic, fantasy, humanoid, paper, wtf |

Voting is something democratic societies hold as an important right. Some counties have compulsory voting, most allow citizens to choose whether they want to vote – all too often the result is the same – groups of opinionated, empty-headed people are elected to represent the views of the common people. Anyone who knows me, realises […]

485: Segway

Posted by wonko on December 7, 2014 in domestic, fantasy, vehicle |

…so I am a teacher, and I teach senior students: I have, on occasions, joked about how cool it would be to own a Segway – my classes are physically far apart and getting between campuses takes time, hence the idea that a PTD (personal transport device) would be cool. I _never_ in my wildest […]

483: Dollar SLR Camera

Posted by wonko on September 19, 2014 in domestic, machine |

A work colleague is going on Long Service Leave – lucky bastard!  It appears he had no end of trouble buying a camera for travelling, so I thought I would make him one as an hooroo gift: Designed by Won Park, this little SLR Camera is tiny, but has a viewfinder, winder lever, shutter button, […]
