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.

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.

851: (301/365) Vale Vicky

Posted by wonko on October 28, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, seasonal |

People process loss in different ways. 10 years ago a friend lost her fight with cancer and I am still saddened by the loss of such a bright and affirming soul: While I could not bring myself to attend a memorial mass, none the less I still feel the loss. I chose to find solace […]

Triceratops

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2017 in dinosaur |

EDIT: as a kind reader pointed out, I have already folded this model, so it cannot count as one of the current 365. It is a relief on 2 fronts (1) Someone is reading and (2) This fold of this model is vastly superior to the original Some call me a dinosaur, they may be […]

820: (270/365) Their Lives in Our Hands

Posted by wonko on September 27, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

Recently I had the privilege to see Humpback Whales lounging and playing in Hervey Bay: I was determined to fold a Humpback, but only really found one designer that had designed something that even remotely looks like a Humpback. Highly tapered body, hooked dorsal fin, soft bellows-like throat, tail fluke – this model has it […]

793: (243/365) Jun Maekawa’s Tetra tetra

Posted by wonko on August 31, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Looking for today’s fold, I returned to a collection of bookmarked models from my growing collection of Tanteidan magazines: Made of 4 tetrahedral modules, each with deep tabs along a pair of adjacent sides, you then fold a pair of interlocking preliminary bases as the core.

792: (242/365) Fractal Folding

Posted by wonko on August 30, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

Speaking of fractals, as I was (well, kinda sorta) I realised I had never tried the Fujimoto Hydrangea fold before: This is an interesting thing, with each iteration folded inside the previous – in theory you can keep folding this infinitely. In reality the tryanny of paper thickness and fat clumsy fingers stops you.

791: (241/365) Flower Tessellation

Posted by wonko on August 29, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, flower, geometry |

Browsing a MiniNeo eZine that I follow, I noticed a rather interesting looking hexagonal flower and thought it worth a try: You triangle grid a hexagon into 16ths, then put a hex twist in the middle, then add the swing-back on petals and tidy up the tessellation to make a swirl.

781: (231/365) Naomiki Sato’s First Pentagonal Rose

Posted by wonko on August 19, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, geometry |

I am seriously attempting to perfect the “rose” form in Origami. In my mind, there is no better master of this flower than Naomiki Sato: I bought his book (and DVD) entitled “Rose” and am determined to work though the various forms presented therein. This is called his “first pentagonal rose” and I can see […]

761: (211/365) Spirit House

Posted by wonko on July 30, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, Traditional |

When I went to Japan in the early Noughties, I loved so much of the culture I encountered in the everyday. On my return I decided our house deserved a “Spirit House”. The principle is simple, it guards our front door, traps the bad spirits from entering and amplifies the good: Since it’s install, it […]
