620: (70/365) Montroll’s One-Sheet Omega Star

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

Modular stars are a thing, there are many beautiful ones including multi-sheet omega stars (8 pointers), but this little beauty is crafted from a single uncut square: From a sunken waterbomb base we tease xyz planes then fashion points from their intersections – genius.

570: (20/365) Trump Salute

Posted by wonko on January 20, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, humanoid |

In the United States of America on this day they are inaugurating their 45th president – one Donald Trump: I _want_ to congratulate him and his party on a campaign well fought, policies well considered and popular vote being a landslide but sadly none of these seems true from where I sit. Looking for a […]

532: A Krafty Little Fokker

Posted by wonko on May 22, 2016 in vehicle |

Manfred von Richthofen, AKA “The Red Baron” flew a TRIPLANE – I know, right! Now a Triplane makes no sense to me, but using it, von Richthofen shot down his last 19 enemy planes, and subsequently crashed himself (you win some, you lose some): I have lost count of the times students have asked if […]

520: Blackstar

Posted by wonko on January 12, 2016 in blarg, geometry |

Having pre-ordered the new album by David Bowie, I was delighted when it arrived in my postbox yesterday morning (Monday 11 January 2016). Much hyped, I put it on loud, in high rotation for the day, each listen affirming a new favorite Bowie Album. In the afternoon we went grocery shopping, to return home to […]

519: Before the Big Bang

Posted by wonko on December 28, 2015 in geometry, paper |

Curved creases seem to do interesting things to stiff paper. Paper tension that has been tortured by curved folds tends to force planes into curves and distorts geometry in interesting ways. I had a huge offcut of Canson watercolour paper and decided to try Thoki Yenn and Josef Albers “Before The Big Bang” – an […]

496: Satoshi Kamiya’s Ryujin 3.5

Posted by wonko on March 24, 2015 in dinosaur, fantasy |

On March 21, 2014, I began a quest to learn how to fold Satoshi Kamiya’s “Ryujin 3.5”, and was lucky enough to be accepted as a pupil of Mr Daniel Brown (MrOrigami). Daniel sent me a lesson, I had to perform the illustrated tasks and photo my evidence back to him before he sent me […]

464: Say it with Flowers

Posted by wonko on December 24, 2013 in flower, seasonal |

In our previous house I had a rose garden – I planted and maintained 42 rose bushes, lovingly collected cow poo, mulched, pruned and relentlessly sprayed them to combat the Queensland climate’s unsuitability for growing them. I also was a member of the Queensland Rose Society so occasionally displayed blooms at shows and in competitions, […]

458: Lang’s Flying Grasshopper = Jemima Cricket = WTF# 20

Posted by wonko on October 20, 2013 in wtf |

Sometimes I just need to fold, it is difficult to explain but I find great clarity in wrestling with complex geometry. We ALL have much to learn GRASSHOPPER.  Having bought Robert Lang’s “Origami Insects Volume 2” I thought it was high time to fold something from it. Lang’s models are great technical exercises, amazing manipulations […]

Aquarius! I saw a crease pattern whilst trolling through the Origami Forum that looked like it was […]

MC by any other name

Posted by wonko on December 31, 2012 in bird, blarg |

A tool in many origamist’s toolbox is a goopy substance called “Methyl Cellulose” (MC) – it is a chemical that is used as a size (keeps paper crisp/stiff), gelling agent (it is the stuff that makes KY Jelly so slimy – no kids, that is NOT a new aeroplane flavour) and there is even a […]
