Green Tree Frog

Posted by wonko on January 8, 2014 in amphibian |

I have recently spent time in a cabin in the woods – well, in truth, it is a cabin among some semi-tropical rain forest in the border ranges in northers New South Wales – a retreat for body and mind: Having made some “double tissue“, I was itching to see how it took folds and […]

458: Lang’s Flying Grasshopper = Jemima Cricket = WTF# 20

Posted by wonko on October 20, 2013 in wtf |

Sometimes I just need to fold, it is difficult to explain but I find great clarity in wrestling with complex geometry. We ALL have much to learn GRASSHOPPER.  Having bought Robert Lang’s “Origami Insects Volume 2” I thought it was high time to fold something from it. Lang’s models are great technical exercises, amazing manipulations […]

At Loggerheads

Posted by wonko on May 17, 2013 in nature, reptile |

I have been a little down, sick and my hands are not working as well as they should be so needed something to boost my spirits: I took a sheet of 35x35cm Olive Tant and decided to try and re-make a model I have only ever achieved once, much much bigger. Logic would suggest, in […]

432: Giraffe

Posted by wonko on February 3, 2013 in mammal |

I have been on the lookout for a nice giraffe for a number of reasons, but stumbled across Hideo Komatsu’s in a JOAS Tanteidan: This was a fun model to fold – it twists and turns and for most of the journey looks NOTHING like a giraffe.

425: Dancing Crane

Posted by wonko on January 1, 2013 in bird |

I first saw a pair of these lovely things, folded in white, clearly dancing to impress each other and put it on my list of must try models by Robert Lang: A lazy afternoon over the Christmas break, I took a 60cm sq or brown Kraft paper and, over cups of tea, mince pies and […]

424: Rudolph the Roosevelt Elk

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2012 in mammal |

Looking for something festive, inspired by “Robbie the Reindeer” on the telly, I decided to fold this challenging model by Robert Lang: Masterpiece of design, I had to measure 13 landmarks (by scaling measurements based on 70ths) and then I folded triangles subdividing the surface, using those landmarks as vertices. Then you bisect every angle […]

415: Smaug the Golden

Posted by wonko on November 22, 2012 in animal, dinosaur, fantasy, reptile |

I have been looking for a nice dragon, you know, in celebration of the forthcoming release of “The Hobbit” (being a bit of a fan): I saw a coloured/cut version of this dragon on Deviantart and thought it worth trying, turns out it is a WIP from Tadashi Mori, who released a video of how […]

414: Sopwith Camel

Posted by wonko on November 17, 2012 in domestic, machine, vehicle |

I have been asked many times by well-meaning people whether I can make paper air planes: The honest answer is “sort of” – I love fantastically complicated and detailed Origami models of actual planes, but cannot make one that can fly for shit. This little beauty was a right bastard of a fold but closely resembles, […]

411: Phizz-based Stellated Icosahedron

Posted by wonko on October 25, 2012 in geometry |

The “phizz” unit designed by Tom Hull is a basic building block that can be used for many modulars: I thought I would start manageable, so devised a 30 unit ball, 6 faces each of 5 colours – total of 30 units. These are easy folding and have a positive locking mechanism so were a […]
