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 […]

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 […]

270: False Teeth

Posted by wonko on September 27, 2011 in domestic, geometry |

Anyone who knows me realizes the terror I experience when visiting the dentist: Don’t get me wrong, our dentist is awesome, and very aware that I have an irrational fear that I cannot control when being worked on. A red frog (chewy lolly) was the latest culprit, taking away most of a huge filling on […]

240: The Stork Brings Babies

Posted by wonko on August 28, 2011 in bird, blarg, domestic, humanoid |

That’s right children, when the mummy and the daddy love each other very much, the stork visits them and brings them a baby: Such a strange lie so often promulgated in years gone by to obviate an awkward conversation about the details of how birds and bees … well, you know … actually, that is […]

230: Swiss Army Knife

Posted by wonko on August 18, 2011 in domestic |

When I first saw this model I knew I had to fold it: The very idea of a FUNCTIONING Swiss Army Knife seemed undelievable but here it is – Blade, Awl, Bottle Opener and Screwdriver all that folds away much the same as the metal one does – very neat. A relatively simple fold in the end […]

216: I’m A Little Teapot

Posted by wonko on August 4, 2011 in domestic |

I’m a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle, here is my spout. When I get all steamed up then I shout, “tip me over pour me out”: It is a well known fact that I am seriously into TEA, so it is natural to make a teapot, when I saw this model I […]
