637: (87/365) Cyclonic Spiral

Posted by wonko on March 28, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Currently, North Queensland is being beaten up by Cyclone “Debbie”: Australian cyclones are huge. As weather systems go, we do them big down under and “Debbie” was once a category 4 (which is nearly Category 5, for the folks at home) which on a scale of “is that a cloud” to “fuck, most of my town […]

635: (85/365) Earth Hour

Posted by wonko on March 26, 2017 in 365-2017, seasonal |

Last night (25th March) was Earth Hour. Between 8:30 and 9:30pm we turned off our lights: I decided to try and fold something by torchlight … great plan Einstein.

624: (74/365) Babe

Posted by wonko on March 15, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is rare that with relatively few folds the essence of a 4 legged beastie is so well captured: This is a continuation of the exploration of Eduardo Clemente’s work, his simple pig, charming little critter it is.

600: (50/365) A Shedload of Models

Posted by wonko on February 19, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

For those of you keeping up, you will notice SOME of the posts on this blog have numbers. The first number (in this case 600) represents a catalogue of sorts – it documents the number of new models that I have never folded, before documenting it here: Jo Nakashima’s “6” is new for me, the […]

595: (45/360) Valentines Day

Posted by wonko on February 14, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Now I know there are those who say that Valentines Day is a Hallmark business opportunity, but I happen to think that celebrating someone you love is a good thing: My valentine loves to read, so I thought a pair of Washi Deluxe bookmarks would not go astray.

589: (39/360) Box with Hinged Lid

Posted by wonko on February 8, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes |

I seem to have an endless fascination with clever origami boxes – this one caught my eye and I knew I needed to try and fold it: Anna Kastlunger has designed a nifty scalable box with an integrated hinged lid that is delightful and possibly useful for precious things.

579: (29/365) Half and Three Quarter Cube

Posted by wonko on January 29, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Leafing through “Folding Australia” I came across an odd modular that results in half and three quarters of a cube: Simple folding, deft locking mechanism and a little geometric brain bending.

567: (17/365) Jo Nakashima’s Penguin

Posted by wonko on January 17, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, blarg |

Returning to work, we balance between the stinking hot outside temperature and the painfully cold airconditioning (yes, I know this sounds like a first world problem, and it is), but I decided to fold a critter that has evolved to put up with intolerable temperatures: This is Jo Nakashima’s Penguin, a lovely little model with a […]

566: (16/365) Dave Stephenson’s Tiny Turtle

Posted by wonko on January 16, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, reptile |

Over the holiday break I have taken up swimming laps again. The aim was to be a little bit fitter and a little less fatter – it is sort of working. Naturally I wanted to choose a model for my last day swimming that itself swam, and a turtle/tortoise (who knows what the difference is) […]

555: (5/365) Maple Leaf Bookmark

Posted by wonko on January 5, 2017 in 365-2017, plant, seasonal |

Naturally, I blame Canada, as any good Southparkian would: This is Inayoshi Hidehisa’s Maple Leaf chopstick holder but I rather think it works (at this scale at least) much better as a bookmark.
