448: Cutting a Rug

Posted by wonko on August 4, 2013 in humanoid |

I am old enough to remember the “good old days” when partners dance WITH each other as opposed to the modern trend of dancing AT each other: Flicking through a yellowed and falling apart copy of “Origami 4” by Robert Harbin, I came across a Neal Elias figure I had not remembered nor tried. Using […]

441: Ballerina Kit

Posted by wonko on May 5, 2013 in humanoid |

Most parents know little girls go through the “I want to be a Ballerina” stage: This is a wonderful thing; dance, culture, beauty and movement are all things that make our lives richer. Few go on to be professional ballet dancers (more’s the pity, few fit the fragile stick-insect archetype) but learning dance improves coordination, […]

431: Brill’s Woven Dodecahedron

Posted by wonko on January 31, 2013 in geometry |

As a teacher, I look for activities, particularly in the establishment phase of a year, to engage. Nothing says engagement like a hands-on physical activity and, as my wont is origami, I went for a modular project: The themes for this were many, the metaphors a plenty – “many hands make light work” and “the […]

421: Asiatic Elephant

Posted by wonko on December 11, 2012 in animal, mammal |

I have folded a few elephants – most concentrate on the head and ignore the rest of the animal – not so this little beauty: This model has much solidity about it. It looks like it has bulk yet uses little paper to do this, an interesting haunch locking mechanism and a tight little bottom (ahem). Taken […]

420: Kamiya’s Diamond

Posted by wonko on December 10, 2012 in geometry |

I have been exploring folded regular polyhedra, but came across this, a brilliant cut faceted diamond by Satoshi Kamiya and thought I would give it a go: As a first fold, this is pretty sloppy to be honest – only after finishing it did the geometry I was laying down in pre-creases make sense. I […]

418: Kamiya’s Golden Retriever

Posted by wonko on December 8, 2012 in animal, domestic, mammal |

As soon as I knew Satoshi was due to release a new book, I knew I had to have it: This is the first fold of my first model from “The Works of Satoshi Kamiya 2”, and it is quite recognisably a Golden retriever/labrador.  For anyone who has been blessed with a lab in their […]

412: Satoshi’s Coelophysis

Posted by wonko on October 27, 2012 in dinosaur |

I have many designs for dinosaurs, few more elegant that the Coelophysis designed by Satoshi Kamiya This raptor has a marvellous stance, gracious body proportions and a menacing appearance – quite a feat given it started as a square cut from A3 copy paper. A very well designed model indeed, quite dense in places but very economical with […]

402: Washi Hex-Box

Posted by wonko on August 18, 2012 in boxes |

This model combines two things I love about Origami: The geometry of Fujimoto’s Hex box is wonderful, it provided me the perfect excuse to do that which I have put off for far too long. A colleague (thank you Mrs Erizabreth) gave me a roll of hand-made Washi she brought back from Japan many years […]

398: Los Hombre

Posted by wonko on July 8, 2012 in humanoid |

I have been exploring the wonderful work of Victor Coeurjoly, in particular his human figure (hombres) work which is very distinctive. I came upon a crease pattern in his Flickr stream and knew I had to try it. I have been exploring these guides more and more as I find super complex models exist only […]

357: Get Folked

Posted by wonko on December 23, 2011 in humanoid |

‘Tis the season when thoughts of old hippies (and new-age trendies) shift to prepping for the Woodford Folk Festival: I am old enough (and formally a resident) to remember when this gathering was held at Maleny, and how the locals hated this time of year because of the huge influx of afore-mentioned hippy-hopefuls. Folk guitar is one […]
