928: In Memoriam – Francis Ow

Posted by wonko on June 30, 2018 in geometry, Traditional |

The international origami community recently learned of the death of Frances Ow: Francis was an active and beloved member of the Singapore Origami group, and sadly I never had the privilege of meeting him in the real world. But, via the magic that is the Internet I have been personally encouraged and supported by him […]

523: Francis Ow’s Double Cube

Posted by wonko on February 7, 2016 in geometry |

I seem fixated on modular origami at the moment (a branch I have not really done very much in). When I saw Francis Ow’s Double Cube, I asked him if I could have a go at folding it: He generously shared some instructions with me (how amazing is the Internet – it can put you […]

522: House Module – Group Activity

Posted by wonko on February 3, 2016 in geometry |

As a teacher, I have a pastoral care group of students from multiple year levels, many initial strangers and new students at the start of the year. I look for an activity that we can all focus on, conversations and collegiality usually follows. Francis Ow published diagrams on a “house” module (strangely appropriate) and hints […]

…so I was bugged that as tiny little triangles, in white, I found it impossible to complete the 5 intersecting shape thing, so I went to the school copy room and asked for some colourful Copy paper – A4. I got 5 strong colours, cut squares, made them into thirds, total of 6 strips per […]

142: Interlaced Tetrahedra

Posted by admin on May 22, 2011 in geometry |

Now I have never tried MODULAR origami – it is a huge and enthusiastic movement in the society of paper benders – making modules that lock together to make a compound shape. I found instructions for Francis Ow’s 60° Unit and thought I would give a tetrahedron (6 of these units) a go: I … […]
