747: (197/365) Root Veg

Posted by wonko on July 16, 2017 in 365-2017, plant |

Winter is for hearty food, stews and seasonal root veg: With such open food importing and trade however we see every vegetable and fruit available all year round. Peru grows my Asparagus, Venezuela exports my Fennel and China supplies my Carrots at the moment.

636: (86/365) Marking

Posted by wonko on March 27, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, geometry, seasonal |

This time of year I add marks to student work: I want to pretend it is a life-giving activity for me, the teacher.

621: (71/365) Little Mouse

Posted by wonko on March 12, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, mammal |

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.

591: (41/360) Miura Ori Fold

Posted by wonko on February 10, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Paper-influenced materials engineering has gained incredible momentum in the last few years as ancient and modern folding techniques get applied to modern materials: The Miura Ori fold is a fascinating corrugation that takes large flat surfaces, divides them up into “shallow” parallelograms, re-arranges the creases into alternate rows of mountain and valley across the folded […]

556: (6/365) Tiny Cobra

Posted by wonko on January 6, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, reptile |

In exploring the “Tiny Snek” interwebs phenomenon, I stumbled across a money fold that resulted in a simple cobra: This is a variation on Vu Dung’s Cobra, folded from a 2×1 rectangle. Although relatively simple it was made more difficult by the size of the fold – this is tiny but still has a recognisable […]

552: (2/365) Tiny Snek

Posted by wonko on January 2, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, creepy crawly |

…so apparently, like, on the internets and stuff, Tiny Sneks are a thing, right: This is Gen Hagiwara’s cartoon snake, a cute little model with lovely googly eyes and a smile. I made it tiny… because.

536: Double Tsuru (2)

Posted by wonko on June 18, 2016 in bird, Traditional, wtf |

Joined at the wing, this pair of Tsuru (traditional Cranes) was folded from a single sheet split nearly in half: Taken from “Hiden Senbazuru Orikata (The Secret of One Thousand Cranes Origami)” published in 1797. It is part of a series I hope to tackle… The trick is to not tear it as you fold […]

535: Double Tsuru (1)

Posted by wonko on June 18, 2016 in bird, blarg, geometry, Traditional |

Browsing the internet, as you do, I came upon a chance find of an amazing archive of pages from what is thought to be the oldest Origami book published – “Hiden Senbazuru Orikata (The Secret of One Thousand Cranes Origami)”, first published in 1797: Looks like i have a new project, making Tsuru (traditional Cranes) […]

Decoration

Posted by wonko on November 30, 2015 in geometry, seasonal |

Although I began folding paper when I was 11, I peaked at about 13 (back then, in my own mind) by mastering Jack Skillman’s “Jackstone”: I had bought Robert Harbin’s Origami book series, the model featured in book 2 at the back which meant it wqas hard. It seems the Jackstone was at the time […]

463: Going Crackers

Posted by wonko on December 16, 2013 in boxes, domestic |

Contemplating buying Christmas Crackers, you gain a sense of waste and expense – they are hideously expensive and full of stuff no sane person would actually want: …so I thought about folding some. I am fond of a twist, and whilst exploring the maths of a hex ¬†twist, I discovered a method for making a […]
