387: Happy Wedding Anniversary

Posted by wonko on April 2, 2012 in blarg, domestic |

April 2, a special day that Jo and I celebrate our Wedding anniversary: So I thought a schmaltzy, sentimental origami card was in order, so fashioned an origami “valentine” designed by Robert Lang (from “Origami Design Secrets”, a fantastic book). I had not tried this model and wondered how it was possible to sculpt both […]

385: Beer Mug/TeaCup

Posted by wonko on March 31, 2012 in domestic |

… so I was thinking through a waterproof container, being inspired by a paper cup I dismantled from a water cooler, and came across this design: Working with an A4 page, and inscribing, via a simple half-third intersection and some simple geometric construction, an octagonal base, sides radiating from it and pleats to tuck away […]

311: Air Mail

Posted by wonko on November 7, 2011 in blarg, domestic |

“Once upon a time, boys and girls, people used to use hand-held ink dispensing rods to make marks on flat sheets of manufactured plant fibre, fold them, place them inside an envelope of the same material, write a distant geospatial reference on one side, their own geospatial reference on the other. They would then pay […]

309: V for Vendetta

Remember remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason Should ever be forgot… As a kid I remember cracker night – well in truth, it was cracker week because you could buy fireworks and we used to spend the week blowing things up. In retrospect, all that […]

288: Happy Birthday Gemma

Posted by wonko on October 15, 2011 in domestic, flower, geometry |

A friend turns 40 tonight, and quite likes roses, so I thought a paper construction might compliment the rose bush we were taking as a suitable milestone: Made from 40 pieces of paper, this is a variation of Maria Sinayskaya’s “Little Roses” kusudama (rose ball), a curious construction that features triplets of lightly bent petals that interlock […]

282: Skillman’s Chair

Posted by wonko on October 9, 2011 in furniture |

Now I freely admit as a kid I was an origami wimp – seeing complicated folds of this “comfy chair” and running a mile, or half-ass trying them, crumpling the paper and sulking. This fold, by Jack Skillman, seemed too hard way back then so I never tried it: As it turns out, the only […]

279: Computer Mouse

Posted by wonko on October 6, 2011 in blarg, domestic |

It was announced today that Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Computer passed away today after a long battle with pancreatic cancer: It is my considered opinion that Apple Computers lead a revolution in personal computing for many reasons, an important one being the re-introduction of the computer mouse as an integral pointing device for a […]

278: Passing Notes

Posted by wonko on October 5, 2011 in domestic, geometry |

Now those who know me realise 2 things – I love music but I cannot read those little black dots on the lines for nuts: It was doubly problematic when I was in a choir as all those around me were able to sight-read and I … sort of … faked it (I have good […]

272: Cheers, Big Ears

Posted by wonko on September 29, 2011 in domestic, geometry |

Now I am a little bit merry after the QSITE drinks mid way through their annual conference: So decided to give some pleating a go to form a martini glass – the principle is based on a technique designed by Stephen Hecht and involves exhaustive pre-creasing followed by an elegant twist/collapse The resultant sculptural form is […]
