106: Liz’s Elephant

Posted by wonko on April 16, 2011 in mammal |

21 years ago, my adorable squealing little girl was born. As soon as she could recognize an elephant, she was fascinated by them – Happy Birthday Liz: So I decided it was appropriate to make Liz an Elephant for her 21st Birthday – they say an Elephant never forgets (not sure why, I am sure […]

Participatory Origami reaches YOU. Go get an A4 sheet of paper NOW, here is a cracking model for you to try:

82: Scottie Dog

Looking for something that was quick, as I was out for most of the day, I came across a rather charming Scottie Dog: This model by Neil Elias looks more like a pug puppy, but it could have been how I folded it – cute as a puppy, sitting, in profile however.

77: Robin

Posted by wonko on March 18, 2011 in bird |

Robins and Wrens are lovely little birds, stickey-uppey tail, tiny and delicate: Quite happy with this model, taken from “More Origami” by Robert Harbin, a book I bought years ago. This is a fairly manageable manipulation of the bird base but the legs are so tortuously thin that I had to help it stand up with a […]

71: Oarsome Eight

Posted by wonko on March 12, 2011 in humanoid, vehicle |

Now I have nothing but respect for rowers (and their poor exhausted parents) and this weekend is the annual “Head of the River” regatta, battling for a shiny thing, so I thought I would do a rower. Our rowers (like many Brisbane-based rowing clubs) have had a really broken season – their shed was destroyed […]

66: Golden Slipper Orchid

Posted by wonko on March 7, 2011 in flower |

I have grown these, but the blooms of the cultivars I am familiar with are really tiny yellow leopard spotted flowers – I misjudged the scale (seems a full square from an A4 makes quite a sizeable bloom) A delicate, spidery flower, with a well developed nectary and some interesting folds – if I was […]

63: Polar Bear

Posted by wonko on March 4, 2011 in mammal |

Looking through the British Origami Society website, I stumbled across a simple pattern for a Polar Bear: Made from 1/2 a square triangle, you fold half the bird base and massage from there – nice little model designed by Max Hulme that uses creases to create a 3d body and hindlegs out of nowhere. As […]

41: Pavlova

Posted by wonko on February 10, 2011 in fruit |

Now generally my students rock. Often they do really cool things and this bunch of Year 12s seem to enjoy, from time to time, homebake. I was approached, post Australia Day, and canvassed as to whether it would be ok to bring Pavlova to share in our double IPT … silly question really:We as a […]

5: Veloceraptor

Posted by wonko on January 7, 2011 in dinosaur |

I like this, the posture/stance is sort of what I expect (after watching Jurassic Park) and I like how you get the vestigial arms seemingly from nowhere. I like how the shadow makes it more menacing as well, accidental photos using obscure light sources can result in nice happenstances sometimes. Nice model, interesting manipulation of the […]
