23: Fujimoto’s Apple

Quite taken with box pleating, I looked for a 3D piece of fruit and came across Fujimoto’s Apple – a real bastard of a pre-creasing exercise that coalesces into a delightfully organic shapeI was heard to exclaim WOW as the mess of twisted and tangled paper started to take shape. Botanists will note this is a morphologically correct model – it is comprised of 5 sections/divisions as is the core of a real apple, has the right shape and is hollow.

Why an apple? Well, I have a saucepan of stewed apple and nectarine gently ticking away on the stove that will become the most delicious crumble later tonight … why not?Please have a go at this yourself, if you can follow the instructions and understand the presenter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2e4jyWCtaU

  1. This is fantastic! Thank you for sharing your paper trials and tribulations with the rest of us paper folks…

  2. Folded large and orange this makes a great pumpkin/jack-o-lantern also if you are into that sort of thing in the Fall (which will come soon enough).

    1. ahh, yes – the whole Halloween thing – in Australia that is not really celebrated, it is not a tradition we have adopted yet
