904: (354/365) Caterpillar

Posted by wonko on December 20, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, geometry |

When looking for a simple fold, one’s attention naturally falls on a torturous corrugation-based model that takes an age to fold (not): This is Maarten Van Gelder Caterpillar – an exhaustive corrugation executed on an 8×1 rectangle (although I think it would be more effective on even longer paper).

895: (345/365) Tightrope

Posted by wonko on December 11, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry, humanoid |

Life is a delicate balance, kind of like being on a tightrope way above the ground in the bigtop. Balance is important, lots of things effect balance: Work, life, play, people, things that all take their toll on our balance, and we all struggle to walk the line sometimes, tipping this way and that as […]

846: (296/365) Peacock 1

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

I gotta learn to be more careful, the previous post (which I removed the number from) turned out to be a refold from my first 365 (years ago) that I had forgotten about (I got the fold sequence from somewhere else and did not twig to the duplication … so sue me 😛 ) Fortunately […]

845: (295/365) Leaf Katydid

Posted by wonko on October 22, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Insects seem to be a fascination among origami designers – at the height of “bug wars” when designers were competing for the most intricate designs that were  complex, had lots of legs, were thin and realistic renderings and really pushed the boundaries of existing techniques: This astonishing model starts as a frog base. Through a […]

805: (255/365) Further Fractal Folding

Posted by wonko on September 12, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Time is scarce but this was folded while kids were doing a really hard test, figured I should try something hard also: This is a level 6 fractal fold of the previously folded Shuzo Fujimoto Hydrangea, and a beauty to behold.

785: (235/365) Pentagonal Masu

Posted by wonko on August 23, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

A Masu (or box) was traditionally square and used to measure rice in Japanese kitchens. These days, masu are typically used to sip Sake out of: Having mastered David Brill’s Square Masu, I thought it time to try the pentagonal one. Apparently the pentagonal masu exists only in Origami circles – this makes sense as […]

775 (225/365) Boney McBoneface – New Legs

Posted by wonko on August 13, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

So today I got up at 3.30am to catch a shuttle bus to the other side of the city at 4.30am so I could register for the charity walk I had agreed to accompany my daughter on: 35kms later, we made it to the finish line and most of my bits currently hate me. I […]

773: (223/365) Boney McBoneface – Ticker

Posted by wonko on August 11, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Every body needs a good engine house, a solid “ticker” and this rib cage assembly is a masterpiece in modular origami: Vertebrae lock with rib bones, these link into a sternum (breast bone) and provides linkages to neck, shoulders and lower back – genius. Made from 13 squares, 4 bird-base inspired vertebrae, tubular ribs and […]

770: (220/365) Boney McBoneface – Skull

Posted by wonko on August 8, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, humanoid |

…so I am embarking on a mega-structure fold, the aim is to complete a humanoid skeleton. After crowd-sourcing ideas, I went with the name “Boney McBoneface” (or Boney M for short): We start with the head, noggin, pate, gourd, dome, brainbox, melon, block, nut (feel free to insert other colloquialisms). As this megastructure involves a […]

763: (213/365) There’s a Fly in my …

Posted by wonko on August 1, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Looking for something to fold that was vaguely “insecty”, I stumbled across a lovely box-pleated fly mangled from a 2×1 rectangle: Based on a 16×32 grid, we isolate head, legs, lovely plump abdomen and leave the back flap for a lovely set of wings.
