867: (317/365) Not Drowning, Waving?

Posted by wonko on November 13, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, humanoid |

This time of year is horrible. The plain truth of it is that, for a teacher, we have more marking than a reasonable person can do, and deadlines that seem impenetrable: I guess it is why teachers in Australia are payed the big bucks, right?

841: (291/365) Shuriken

Posted by wonko on October 18, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Now I am pretty sure that “ninja stars” were not really a thing, but – meh: This rather charming woven six-pointed star is an interesting exercise in re-working a square into a windmill-like hexagonal base.

788: (238/365) Sea Turtle

Posted by wonko on August 26, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, reptile |

Exploring Facebook, as one does, a delightful little sea turtle was posted in a group I am a member of by Migue Crm: A simple 16×16 grid, some lovely waterbomb collapses for shell scales and some lovely flippers make this a fantastic model all round.

744: (194/365) Wizard’s Hat

Posted by wonko on July 13, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry |

Anyone who has seen any of the “Lord of the Rings/Hobbit” movies will recognise the profile of this hat: Gandalf the Grey wore a wondrous felt hat like this, Mike Luo’s “Witches Hat”.

728: (178/365) Bumpy Octahedron

Posted by wonko on June 27, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So you take a 2×1 rectangle, fold it into 4×2 squares, then halve the squares: Then bring one pair of adjacent corners for each square, sink the dimply corner to lock, then repeat.

726: (176/365) Star Block

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Sometimes a simple crease pattern leads to some interesting emergent geometry: This is Charles Santee’s “Star Block”, a 2 part modular that I found when trolling among Origami USA’s “The Fold” issue #22.

723: (173/365) Feathered Tsuru

Posted by wonko on June 22, 2017 in 365-2017, bird, Crease Pattern, Traditional |

Few would argue that the Tsuru (crane) is the quintessential origami figure. Everybody starts there, the form is so familiar and the skills necessary to fold it form the backbone of so many models: While I have tried many variations of this model, few compare to Riccardo Foschi’s “feathered Tsuru”, a glorious and complex variation […]

722: (172/365) Baby Dragon

Posted by wonko on June 21, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, dinosaur, fantasy |

Reporting is a beast of a thing, particularly semester reporting where we seem to joust with nit-picking grammar on parts of a report that parents do not read. Slaying the beast is particularly satisfying: This is Riccardo Foschi’s Baby Lizard Dragon … thing. I found the CP and a photo of the finished model and […]

615: (65/365) Spheroid

Posted by wonko on March 6, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, paper |

Who could have foreseen that the concurrence of a series of parallel mountain folds interspersed between a series of concentric parabolic valley folds would result in something with such sculptural simplicity?: This is Jun Mitani’s “Spheroid”, well, at least as close as I could get to it by guessing the intervals between parallel lines and […]

612: (62/365) Minecraft Golden Snitch

Posted by wonko on March 3, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry, wtf |

Potter Nerds and Minecraft Nerds unite, for I present to you a “Minecraft” style cubey golden snitch: This buzzy little bugger would be difficult to catch in a full on game of Quidditch indeed. This is Riccardo Foschi’s “CuBird”, an interesting little CP that collapses with a little wrangling to make a lovely little cube and […]
