Busy times indeed – perfect for folding a 12 piece modular: Fairly simple modules that sit over one, inside another adjacent module, locking fairly positively into swirls of 4 “petals”, you get a shape that describes a cube when you look just at the points.
I am such a fan of David Brill’s work: His command of seemingly impossible geometry is complimented by the works of Francis Ow, the designer of the other “Double Cube” I have folded – a torturous skeletal structure.
I was gifted some beautiful but fragile rice paper (paper made with rice plant fibre) that is flecked with gold leaf: Soft, fabric like I realised it was fairly useless as a folding medium so, armed with some freshly prepared MC, I plastered it to a window in the hope that the addition of sizing […]
So I have this line I sometimes use: “find some nice paper and I will make something for you”: A friend (*waves to Jan*) found a packet of 15cm (ish) hand-printed Washi and teh challenge was on.
I saw Tadashi Mori demonstrating a Kawasaki Rose-based modular and thought I would give it a whirl: Having failed miserably every other attempt to fold a Kawasaki Rose, I was chuffed to succeed this time. I want to say I will fold this again – it took an age and although I was impressed with […]
