749: (199/365) Oyster Box

Posted by wonko on July 18, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, crustacean, geometry |

David Mitchell is a legendary origami designer, responsible for countless geometric wrangles: This is an “Oyster Box” – a box that resembles a bivalve, that locks together rather satisfyingly and opens to reveal a spacious interior.

402: Washi Hex-Box

Posted by wonko on August 18, 2012 in boxes |

This model combines two things I love about Origami: The geometry of Fujimoto’s Hex box is wonderful, it provided me the perfect excuse to do that which I have put off for far too long. A colleague (thank you Mrs Erizabreth) gave me a roll of hand-made Washi she brought back from Japan many years […]

385: Beer Mug/TeaCup

Posted by wonko on March 31, 2012 in domestic |

… so I was thinking through a waterproof container, being inspired by a paper cup I dismantled from a water cooler, and came across this design: Working with an A4 page, and inscribing, via a simple half-third intersection and some simple geometric construction, an octagonal base, sides radiating from it and pleats to tuck away […]

328: Superdude

Posted by wonko on November 24, 2011 in humanoid |

Now I tried something, for the first time ever. I planned a NEW model, then folded it in prototype, then adjusted the proportions and now there is a NEW ORIGAMI FIGURE in the world – cool hey: I must admit to giggling when it just sort of … worked. I then got the class (who […]

269: Brill’s Dolphin

Posted by wonko on September 26, 2011 in blarg, fish, mammal |

Now I am going visiting to the Sunshine Coast today, so thought something marine would be appropriate: This lovely dolphin reminds me of “flipper” who appeared to frolic in the sea. The sad truth about captive dolphins however is that they lead miserable, confused lives and have a really short lifespan due to stress and […]

154: Draft Donkey

Posted by wonko on June 3, 2011 in mammal |

…so I am marking Drafts, dozens of the things – life goes on hold for a while and I feel like a bit of a work-horse: This is supposed to be a donkey reading a paper – I sort of get it, hope you do to. ears and head are nice, I like how the […]

150: Trophy for Matthew

Posted by wonko on May 30, 2011 in blarg |

My son has recently graduated from his Honors program and as part of his Thesis, he had to compose a poster summarising his paper and findings: So good was this poster that tonight he was awarded “The Alan Bailey Prize” for top student project – yay Matty.  I thought it warranted a shiny thing, so […]

127: Baby Elephant

Posted by wonko on May 7, 2011 in mammal |

This lovely baby elephant approaches the form from an A4 sheet, uncut: I like this model a lot, the shape, position of trunk, tail and ears remind me of a young elephant and there is lots of paper so the potential to massage in detail and character are rich – very clever. Why a baby […]

99: A DNA Double Helix

Posted by wonko on April 10, 2011 in blarg |

Talk about “life, the universe and everything”, this model is an intriguing exercise in pre-folding: Organised ridges, counter folds of diagonals and the model seemed to curl in on itself in a magical sort of way. Interestingly it is composed of 42 base pairs – I wonder if that is a coincidence? Folded from an […]
