792: (242/365) Fractal Folding

Posted by wonko on August 30, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Speaking of fractals, as I was (well, kinda sorta) I realised I had never tried the Fujimoto Hydrangea fold before: This is an interesting thing, with each iteration folded inside the previous – in theory you can keep folding this infinitely. In reality the tryanny of paper thickness and fat clumsy fingers stops you.

791: (241/365) Flower Tessellation

Posted by wonko on August 29, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, flower, geometry |

Browsing a MiniNeo eZine that I follow, I noticed a rather interesting looking hexagonal flower and thought it worth a try: You triangle grid a hexagon into 16ths, then put a hex twist in the middle, then add the swing-back on petals and tidy up the tessellation to make a swirl.

789: (239/365) Trojan Helmet

Posted by wonko on August 27, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern |

While scanning Deviantart for an entirely different reason (replying to comments on some of my works there) it’s algorithm decided I needed to see some of Cahoona’s folds and this delightful helmet was among them: Although it does not appear that way, this CP is deceptively simple. An offset waterbomb base and a colour change […]

777: (227/365) Icosahedral Prism

Posted by wonko on August 15, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So I was messing with a low-grade triangle grid and what to do with it (I often fold grids to keep my eye in) and came across a rather neat geodesic hemisphere that used a section of it: So I cut 2 the same size and proceeded to collapse – one fits inside the other […]

753: (203/365) Origami Lampshade

Posted by wonko on July 22, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

I am clearly in the wrong business, if making money is the aim. Being slightly (well, I think it is healthy) obsessed with paper, when a new dealer arrives on the scene I take notice. A colleague asked if I knew of “The Paper Empire” – a new QLD outlet in Newfarm: I had not […]

728: (178/365) Bumpy Octahedron

Posted by wonko on June 27, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So you take a 2×1 rectangle, fold it into 4×2 squares, then halve the squares: Then bring one pair of adjacent corners for each square, sink the dimply corner to lock, then repeat.

723: (173/365) Feathered Tsuru

Posted by wonko on June 22, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, Crease Pattern, Traditional |

Few would argue that the Tsuru (crane) is the quintessential origami figure. Everybody starts there, the form is so familiar and the skills necessary to fold it form the backbone of so many models: While I have tried many variations of this model, few compare to Riccardo Foschi’s “feathered Tsuru”, a glorious and complex variation […]

722: (172/365) Baby Dragon

Posted by wonko on June 21, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, dinosaur, fantasy |

Reporting is a beast of a thing, particularly semester reporting where we seem to joust with nit-picking grammar on parts of a report that parents do not read. Slaying the beast is particularly satisfying: This is Riccardo Foschi’s Baby Lizard Dragon … thing. I found the CP and a photo of the finished model and […]

704: (154/365) Shuzo Fujimoto’s Stars n Squares Tessellation

Posted by wonko on June 3, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Starting with a square-twist tessellation, you add to the intensity by folding it some more: Alternating spin squares with stars, you get this nightmare of paper torture.

703: (153/365) Square Twist Tessellation

Posted by wonko on June 2, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Assignment time can sometimes be boring for a teacher, especially when kids are beavering away independently: This is a tessellation I have not tried before. Based on a square grid, diagonal squares rotate 45 degrees to lie flat again, causing pleat ripples that are cancelled out by adjacent twists – clever.
