815: (265/365) Pez 3

Posted by wonko on September 25, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

Browsing through Eduardo Clemente’s “Papiroflexia”, I am amazed at how prolific a designer he was, and how many variations on models he published: This is Pez#3 – a rather handsome fish with lovely colour changes.

This rather adorable tiny dino is designed cleverly by Eduardo Clemente: I am so impressed with the body morphology of this model, position and proportion of limbs seems really well considered.

811: (261/365) Stink Bug

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

My citrus trees have a problem that starts about now in the season: Infestations of stinkbugs arrive and soon they are thick with debilitating sucking insects. It would not be so bad but I seem allergic to their secretions, making getting rid of them difficult. I have tried garlic, chilli spray, soapy water, using an […]

810: (260/365) Pez

Posted by wonko on September 24, 2017 in 365-2017, fish |

In catch-up mode, this is Eduardo Clement’s “Pez”: A delightful fish fold that is designed for paper that is the same colour both sides. A charming fold from his book Papiroflexia. relevant because we recently spent time on the waters of Hervey Bay (yes, we did see whales, but yeah)

So it is Wednesday, ‘Hump Day‘: Silly season in the assessment calendar, lots happening and a 2do list from hell. This is Eduardo Clemente’s ‘Camel’ – a dromedary or bactrian (who knows the difference?)

685: (135/365) Bug

Posted by wonko on May 15, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Old-school origami can still be fun, and this model is no exception: Eduardo Clemente’s book “Papiroflexia” contains a plethora of old-style 60’s origami, before the boxpleating, tree-maker days.

Another paper plane – this one a lot like a single propeller Cesna: An interesting fold, thankfully executed with thin paper (a sheet of purple hand-made washi from Daiso)

626: (76/365) Little Snail

Posted by wonko on March 17, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Spirals have most recently been explored by Tomoko Fuse, but lovely spiral shail shells have existed in traditional origami for a long while before that: This is Eduardo Clemente’s snail, well, one of them. As a bi-colour model it cleverly manages the 2 colours ensuring the soft slippy bit of the snail is one colour […]

625: (75/365) Mariposa

Posted by wonko on March 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I must admit to liking folding insects in Origami – something about the extreme paper wrangling necessary to separate out features from the sheet is a great challenge: This is Eduardo Clemente’s “Mariposa” or Butterfly. An interesting fold indeed.

624: (74/365) Babe

Posted by wonko on March 15, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

It is rare that with relatively few folds the essence of a 4 legged beastie is so well captured: This is a continuation of the exploration of Eduardo Clemente’s work, his simple pig, charming little critter it is.
