418: Kamiya’s Golden Retriever

Posted by wonko on December 8, 2012 in animal, domestic, mammal |

As soon as I knew Satoshi was due to release a new book, I knew I had to have it: This is the first fold of my first model from “The Works of Satoshi Kamiya 2”, and it is quite recognisably a Golden retriever/labrador.  For anyone who has been blessed with a lab in their […]

414: Sopwith Camel

Posted by wonko on November 17, 2012 in domestic, machine, vehicle |

I have been asked many times by well-meaning people whether I can make paper air planes: The honest answer is “sort of” – I love fantastically complicated and detailed Origami models of actual planes, but cannot make one that can fly for shit. This little beauty was a right bastard of a fold but closely resembles, […]

409: Wedding Blossoms

Posted by wonko on October 1, 2012 in domestic, flower, plant |

A little over a year ago, my daughter as part of the very early planning stages for her wedding asked (in only the way a daughter can) if we could do something different with the flowers: After much looking around, experimentation and reject schemes we came up with a 5-sheet rose (4 2×1 rectangles for […]

404: Joisel’s Bandonéon

Posted by wonko on September 2, 2012 in blarg, domestic, geometry, machine |

I first noticed this lovely little fold nestled amongst the masterpiece that is Eric Joisel’s Musicians, and decided that i must try to work out how to make it: Now the “purists” amongst you will recognise this as a “Concertina”, but that is splitting hairs, given a “Bandonéon” is square, this is clearly hexagonal, but I digress.

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

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2011 in blarg, domestic |

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 […]
