694: (144/365) Hump Day

Posted by wonko on May 24, 2017 in 365-2017, mammal |

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

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

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.

623: (73/365) Burro con Carro

Posted by wonko on March 14, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, mammal, vehicle |

Yoshizawa Sensei once said “The Horse and the rider are not one, nor should a model of them be”, or words to that effect and I think this model is an interesting reflection of that sentiment: This is Eduardo Clemente’s “Burro con Carro” which I think means “Donkey and Cart”. Fashioned from a 3×1 rectangle, […]

622: (72/365) Nesting

Posted by wonko on March 13, 2017 in 365-2017, bird |

Sometimes tending the nest is more important than what is happening elsewhere: This is Edwardo Clemente’s “Mother Bird” (I think that is what it is called, it is all in Spanish) and is a charming little bi-colour model that manages to tease a lovely flappy mother twitter bird, a pair of hungry chicks and a […]

621: (71/365) Little Mouse

Posted by wonko on March 12, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly, mammal |

Under the weather at the moment, folding while suffering a streaming headcold is not much fun. After 2 model fails, I thought I should go simpler: I stumbled across an obscure book by Eduardo Clemente called “Papiroflexia”, it is full of historically revolutionary designs I must try.
