406: Zombie Uprising

Posted by wonko on September 23, 2012 in fantasy, humanoid |

Trapped in a particularly uninteresting supervision (I am a teacher, sometimes we have to supervise other teacher’s classes), I began bending paper unsure what I was going to make. First I fashioned a hand, devising some lovely slender (skeletal almost) hands and looked at the paper I had left and then it came ot me […]

355: Robin Star

Posted by wonko on December 21, 2011 in geometry |

I was trolling fakebook and came across a lovely video posted by noted origamist Jo Nakashima: Designed by Maria Sinayskaya, this simple but beautiful wreath modular is a keeper – make it out of coloured wrapping paper, small, and it is a lovely tree decoration. I like this a lot – a good solution to […]

294: Montroll’s Centaur

Posted by wonko on October 21, 2011 in humanoid |

Ever since my first disastrous encounter with a centaur, I have been looking for a worthy replacement: This model comes close, the proportions work a little better (although, truth be told it looks more like a man standing with a donkey wedged up his bottom, but you get that). A mch easier fold with plenty […]

282: Skillman’s Chair

Posted by wonko on October 9, 2011 in furniture |

Now I freely admit as a kid I was an origami wimp – seeing complicated folds of this “comfy chair” and running a mile, or half-ass trying them, crumpling the paper and sulking. This fold, by Jack Skillman, seemed too hard way back then so I never tried it: As it turns out, the only […]

276: Nautilus

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2011 in crustacean, geometry, nature |

Tomoko Fuse is undeniably a genius, her work with exacting spiral forms unequalled: This is her “Nautilus”, a lovely recursive form that, after teh pre-creasing, almost folds itself. Elegant and graceful curve, perfectly planned pleats and a tidy shell end make this model a keeper for sheer geometric beauty alone. I want to pretend that I go […]

238: Daffodil Day

Posted by wonko on August 26, 2011 in blarg, flower |

In Australia, August 26 this year is nominated as “Daffodil Day”: We celebrate the lives of those brave people who have fought cancer in all it’s forms – to do so we use a flower, the fragile symbol of hope and beauty: I made a white one, then folded 4 in colour and scattered then […]

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 […]

200: Hercules Beetle

Posted by wonko on July 19, 2011 in creepy crawly |

Wow, 200 days down so I thought I would try something special: Kade Chan is a design master, and this beetle is something I will fold again (only not with copy paper) – this lovely beetle is complete with lovely carapace and modeled mandibles, all in very few folds. Simplicity and economy results in a rounded body […]

187: Spiral Box

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2011 in boxes |

Looking at the plethora of boxes I still have to fold, it is difficult to select just one. I chose this spiral box because the spiral on the lid is echoed in the construction of the bottom: A rectangular box (as opposed to square) that cleverly tucks away flaps inside itself to make a sturdy […]
