475: Timber Wolf

Posted by wonko on June 1, 2014 in mammal |

Leafing through “Origami Sequence” by Quentin Trollip, I am struck by the quality and quantity of amazing designs packed into that book, and the range of skills his models brings to the table. There is this house, at work, that has a Timber Wolf as their house mascot, so I have been on the look […]

469: Fiddly Folding

Posted by wonko on February 9, 2014 in domestic |

My heuristic is that we do not get mail on Fridays – not sure it is always true but mostly. Last Friday I therefore did not check the mailbox. Sunday I discovered my Tanteidan had been delivered on Friday and I had left it for nearly 2 days before opening it. On the cover, Gen […]

468: I am Pegasus, My Name Means Horse

Posted by wonko on February 3, 2014 in fantasy, mammal, seasonal |

I am old enough to remember when a folk singer named Ross Ryan released a campy song about flying horses, and given that is an ear-worm of a song and it has just turned “Year of the Horse” for Chinese New Year, I thought it was an omen on what next to fold: This is […]

465: Green Dragon

Posted by wonko on January 15, 2014 in dinosaur, fantasy |

Now I know you are thinking this is not green, but the design is named “Green Dragon” by Piotr Pluta: After I made the double-sided double tissue I had been looking for a fold that would suit such a busy paper – it sort of looks like dragon skin/scales so the idea took.

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 […]
