915: (365/365) Chris K Palmer’s “Flower Tower”

Posted by wonko on December 31, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, flower, geometry |

I have a long and terrifying “fold me” list of models I will one day get around to – this was on it: An excruciating fractal tessellation that eats paper like few other folds, based on spiral collapses of a dodecagon that then gets turned inside out to make the next level to collapse. The […]

897: (347/365) Deathstar

Posted by wonko on December 13, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry, scifi, seasonal |

Tomorrow in Oz the next chapter of the Star Wars saga opens in cinemas. I am not likely to see it until the crush of “real fans” abates but thought on the eve I would fold something relevant: This I have labelled “Deathstar” because it bears an uncanny resemblance to the space station the Liberator […]

673: (123/365) Longhorn Beetle

Posted by wonko on May 3, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Itching to dive into some thing complex (365 challenges are lousy for this, the one fold a day schedule makes longer hauls really difficult), I decided on an insect from Robert Lang that I had not folded before: Folded nearly life-size, this is a longhorn beetle, a lovely little bug with seemingly ridiculous antennae.

519: Before the Big Bang

Posted by wonko on December 28, 2015 in geometry, paper |

Curved creases seem to do interesting things to stiff paper. Paper tension that has been tortured by curved folds tends to force planes into curves and distorts geometry in interesting ways. I had a huge offcut of Canson watercolour paper and decided to try Thoki Yenn and Josef Albers “Before The Big Bang” – an […]

477: Rooster

Posted by wonko on June 29, 2014 in bird |

I want an origami rooster (in red) to live somewhere in our new kitchen, so set about exploring rooster form with a pair of masters and their individual approaches to rooster form: I “warmed up” with an Eric Joisel “Le Coq” – a fold I had tried years ago and not really mastered so I […]

474: Six Intersecting Squares

Posted by wonko on May 31, 2014 in geometry |

While browsing an origami forum I frequent, I came across a modular that I had not tried, based on 120 degree units: I have a stack of oddments (the ends cut off A4 sheets when squaring them up) and decided to see if they were close enough to the right size for this module (it […]

Hideo Komatsu’s Owl

Posted by wonko on November 9, 2013 in bird |

You find wisdom and counsel is the most unexpected of places, people can be wise beyond their years and offer you more support and encourage than they realise. I was asked to fold an owl, simultaneously, for two completely different purposes. (1) A good mate wanted to give an Owl to someone who had helped […]

“You Shall Pass!”

Posted by wonko on October 28, 2013 in fantasy, humanoid |

Sometimes we all need a little magic in our lives: If anyone can get us past the Balrog and on beyond Mount Doom, Gandalf can. Made from a square (and the scrap cut off to make it a square to make the staff) for a friend who, like all of us, is a valuable and […]

443: Gettin’ Crabby

Posted by wonko on June 23, 2013 in crustacean, wtf |

As a member of JOAS (Japanese Origami Society) a present arrives in the mail every now and then – the Tanteidan magazine. Although it is written in Japanese (and I can not read Japanese) there are lots of fun things to try, occasionally amazing models to try: Now I know I should be marking, but […]

440: Satoshi Kamiya’s Lion

Posted by wonko on April 28, 2013 in mammal |

I had one last piece of Nicholas terry’s “Tissue Foil” and a little time on my hands so decided to try and nut out Satoshi’s Lion: This lovely little model is a right pain to fold – some astonishingly complicated twists and turns that are not really well explained in places – some of the […]
