864: (314/365) 6-part Rhombicuboctahedron

Posted by wonko on November 11, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

…yes, I know, a day late but, meh! Always on the look out for fascinating geometry, I had put this 6-part Rhombicuboctahedron, designed by David Mitchell, in my “fold this when you get a moment” pile:

6 relatively simple modules interlock to make a fascinating ball-like structure but the devil is in the details. Read more…

863: (313/365) Casa Blanca

Posted by wonko on November 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I always find it remarkable that with relatively few folds, we can hint at a shape so familiar that our minds go nuts and full in the visual context:

This is Roman Diaz’s “Casa Illusione”, a faux 3D dwelling that nicely plays with light, angle, perspective and proportion.

I chose to fold it white (Casa Blanca) with a terracotta roof, and imagine it perched on some Tuscan hillside, awaiting my return after a hard day wining and dining at some cantina.

862: (312/365) The Night King

Posted by wonko on November 8, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, humanoid |

Now I am as much a fan of Game of Thrones as the next person, but I do like a good ice zombie as a baddie:

This is Nick Robinson’s “Hairy Man”, but I think it is much more demonstrative of an icy undead monster. Read more…

861: (311/365) Tessellated Star Box

Posted by wonko on November 7, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

I saw a photo sequence of a tessellation that was fashioned into a box and knew I had to try it:

Well, I say tessellation, but really this is just one molecule, but it is none the less beautiful. Read more…

860: (310/365) Pizza Slice

Posted by wonko on November 6, 2017 in 365-2017, wtf |

You know, I thought I understood Pizza, then I went to Naples, Italy, and realised I knew nothing about pizza at all:

There are moments in your life when things just make sense – that moment of clarity where the perfect combination of crushed tomato, basil and mozzarella on a thin crisp base spends 90 seconds in the wood fired oven and emerges perfect in every way. Read more…

859: (309/365) Jumping Frog

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, amphibian |

The traditional world of Origami has many classic folds, it is constantly amazing to me how few of them I have actually folded:

This is a traditional jumping from – well, at least one version of it. The mechanism is simple and relies on paper thickness to provide a spring on the back legs. You gently press between the back legs and as the paper flips out from under your finger, the frog hops – ingenious. Read more…

858: (308/365) Pollywog

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, amphibian |

Sometime a simple model has a charm of its own:

This tadpole is a relatively simple exercise in box pleating to isolate tail and back legs but the shaping is lovely. Read more…

857: (307/365) Maekawa’s One Sheet Flower Stalk

Posted by wonko on November 5, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

Many origami designers have tried to pack lots of details into the one sheet. I have folded Brian Chan’s One sheet Rose many times but I like the simplicity of this flower, stem and leaves:

Using some interesting box pleating and colour management make a rather nice simple flower atop a divided stem and pair of leaves. Read more…

856: (306/365) Brillex Cube

Posted by wonko on November 2, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

I am always on the lookout for interesting folded geometry:

A modular exploration, designed by David Brill is usually interesting and these Brillex cubes seem fascinating. Read more…

855: (305/365) White Rabbits!

Posted by wonko on November 1, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

As is customary on the first day of a new month, we say “white rabbits!”:

This is an old design, and I am not sure i have the shaping quite right yet. Akira Yoshizawa is credited as founding modern Origami and this is one of his designs. Read more…
