895: (345/365) Tightrope

Posted by wonko on December 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry, humanoid |

Life is a delicate balance, kind of like being on a tightrope way above the ground in the bigtop. Balance is important, lots of things effect balance: Work, life, play, people, things that all take thier toll on our balance, and we all struggle to walk the line sometimes, tipping this way and that as […]

894: (344/365) Baby Harp Seal

Posted by wonko on December 10, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal, seasonal |

Sad but true, baby harp seals up until fairly recently were hunted for their pelts – the fashion industry could not get enough of them: While seal hunting still continues today for food, oil and pelts, the clubbing of baby harp seals has largely been banned.

893: (343/365) Teddy

Posted by wonko on December 9, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, mammal |

It has been said that “you are never alone with a rubber duck” – equally true with a teddy bear I suspect: I must experiment with the posture. designed for bi-colour paper, you cannot see the colour changes for eyes and the rest with this fold, but the arms and legs are charming, cutie ears […]

892: (342/365) Inflatable Stellated Octahedron

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

I like a model that is a simple variation of the waterbomb and this is such a thing: Pre-creasing before locking together creates the facets when the solid is inflated.

891: (341/365) Drop Box

Posted by wonko on December 7, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, Crease Pattern, domestic, geometry |

Apparently there is a lolly in Holland called “Drop” – it is most likely a salted licorice, must look that up. This box is designed to gift “drop” to friends: When I first saw the model I was sure it was a bomb … I mean, look at it!

890: (340/365) Arches Tessellation

Posted by wonko on December 6, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

David Huffman is a bit of an origami enigma it seems – he pioneered a bunch of tessellations and surface corrugations and seems to be one of the first to explore curved creases and their bizarre effects on flat sheets: This is is “Arches” tessellation, an intriguing offset brick valley folded grid that then has […]

889: (339/365) Sitting Duck

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

There has been a lot of talk in the media about people demonstrably doing the wrong thing, over a really long period of time. Interesting that one of the defences offered was that they were a “sitting duck” in the post-weinstein era. Regardless, a backyard should be a safe place to play: This is Henry […]

888: (338/365) Cubo Twist

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

This charming 6-piece modular cube is designed by Francesco Mancini and is included in his booklet “Mancinerie”, which I think I purchased from the BOS shop online: Each face is a twisted square. Folded from A5 sheets, the pre-creasing is pretty easy and the twist is satisfying.

887: (337/365) Tree Topper

Posted by wonko on December 5, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid, seasonal |

Always looking for a nice Xmas tree topper, this little angel is designed by Leonardo Pulido Martinez and was presented in one of my BOS journals: Had accuracy (and my Spanish) been better, I would also have hands (fingers) on this little model but I started with an almost square and crease drift occurred towards the […]

886: (336/365) Second-Level Octospiral

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

Paper fractals are fascinating self-repeating/reducing designs that are relatively new in the origami world: This 2nd-level “Octospiral” is a model I saw in one of my last BOS journals before my membership lapsed. Designed and modified by Roman Diaz, Endre Somos and Meenakshi Mukerji, it is a delightfully dense spiral that, theoretically, could keep reducing […]
