244: White Rabbits!

Posted by wonko on September 1, 2011 in mammal |

A Pinch and a punch (well, more correctly a sink, pleat and reverse fold – lol, origamist joke there) for the first of the month: This nice little rabbit is a clever use of a 2×1 rectangle and has a pleasing shape – heaps of modelling potential beyond the base fold. Designed in 2008 by […]

234: Goat

Posted by wonko on August 22, 2011 in mammal |

A simple model for today: A nice little goat – poseable, with some lovely horns, this goaty model is free standing and an interesting use of a waterbomb at one end of a 2×1 rectangle. Staff meeting, late home, felt a little like livestock being led to slaughter, you get that. Top that off with […]

209 Elias’ Bull

Posted by wonko on July 28, 2011 in mammal |

When I bought “Selected Works” by Neil Elias, I was delighted with teh collection of box pleating models from the founder of this technique After watching masterchef tonight I thought “What a lot of bull” – judges and contestants sprouting such a lot of false sentimentality the model I decided to fold was really obvious […]

185: Bald Eagle for July 4th

Posted by wonko on July 4, 2011 in bird |

After abandoning a search for a decent “statue of liberty” model, I decided to settle on an American Bald Eagle as a symbol of independence, what the 4th July is celebrated for in the US: After looking around, I settled on a figurative bald eagle by Robert Lang from “The Complete Book of Origami” and […]

173: Siberian Hamster

Posted by wonko on June 22, 2011 in mammal |

Manuel emphatically suggests “Is no rat, is “Siberian Hampster, man is shop tell me” he insists – it cracks me up every time: Fawlty Towers is not a show I can watch anymore, but a beloved memory is Manuel’s pet, “Basil” the rat, so I made one. Curious and torturous fold this one – I […]

158: Little Plane

Posted by wonko on June 7, 2011 in vehicle |

Stuck for something to do, honestly, so decided to try and make sense of a set of instructions in Spanish with hand-drawn diagrams and hola: This is a little plane – most likely a cesna or similar – remarkably little effort to make a fairly detailed plane Nice landing gear, good wings – it glides! No propeller […]

152: A Magic White Rabbit

Posted by wonko on June 1, 2011 in mammal |

I like this model – a rabbit sitting atop a dice (white spots on the white die – totally Zen) Made with a 2×1 rectangle, containing a waterbomb and crafting the rabbit from what was left is neat I like the ears, nose and posture of the rabbit, and the fact that the waterbomb base […]

137: Magic Ball

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2011 in geometry |

I saw this lovely bit of geometry and reasoned it was actually just a repetitive tessellation: The folds, whilst tiresome (there are a lot of them) are not difficult if you are careful, but the collapse was a new form of torture – it took ages to get all the pleats into place, wrestling with such a flexy […]

86: Bookcase

Posted by wonko on March 27, 2011 in domestic, furniture |

The first box pleating exercise I ever did was this bookcase: The whole thirds thing did my head in as a young folder, now it seems simple – I guess that with practice comes skill development – I wonder if that is a principle that would be useful in education? I regret making this so small now, […]

67: Bloxy

Posted by wonko on March 8, 2011 in humanoid |

Now to celebrate International Women’s Day, I initially decided to make a woman, and stumbled across a model known as “bloxy” because she is a box pleated block-like lego lady. I like that she has a firm bosom, bangs and is sort of free-standing (although the centre of balance is a little off because of […]
