This is a simple water-bombic critter, from a family of compact animals designed by Perro Cerdito: I decided to fold the cow, from a collection that contained a dog (thing) and a cat-ish thing.
If you have not seen the movie “Lion” starring Dev Patel, you really should, it is a wild ride, lovely story and contains reference to an Indian name that means “Lion”: I have been looking for nice lion models and a friend on Fakebook (Oriol Esteve from Spain) graciously shared a recent design. I knew […]
I have had this model on my “must try” list for ages but there was something about the fold sequence that made me uneasy, couldn’t put my finger on it: I decided to fold it in black, because…reasons. faithfully following the folding diagrams unexpected things began to happen – layers on the wrong side, meridians […]
Having folded Robert Lang, Jun Maekawa and Ronald Koh’s Rabbits, I feel I have been a bit spoiled in terms of “best” rabbits out there: Always on the lookout for something new, and given that it is Easter Sunday, a rabbit seemed appropriate and this rabbit gave me an interesting challenge.
Those who know me realise I am mostly a “cat person” but my parents used to have Bassets, lovely dogs that were low to the ground, long ears and seemingly wearing a skin that was 5 sizes too big: I have been looking for a good Basset hound model and, up until now, have not really […]

Australia do not really have bears, well, nothing that is actually a bear but this charming model needed to be folded so folded it I did: This is Edwin Corrie’s Square Bear, a charming model that is relatively simple but demonstrative of form.
It is rare that with relatively few folds the essence of a 4 legged beastie is so well captured: This is a continuation of the exploration of Eduardo Clemente’s work, his simple pig, charming little critter it is.
Yoshizawa Sensei once said “The Horse and the rider are not one, nor should a model of them be”, or words to that effect and I think this model is an interesting reflection of that sentiment: This is Eduardo Clemente’s “Burro con Carro” which I think means “Donkey and Cart”. Fashioned from a 3×1 rectangle, […]
Under the weather at the moment, folding while suffering a streaming headcold is not much fun. After 2 model fails, I thought I should go simpler: I stumbled across an obscure book by Eduardo Clemente called “Papiroflexia”, it is full of historically revolutionary designs I must try.
