860: (310/365) Pizza Slice

Posted by wonko on November 6, 2017 in 365-2017, wtf |

You know, I thought I understood Pizza, then I went to Naples, Italy, and realised I knew nothing about pizza at all: There are moments in your life when things just make sense – that moment of clarity where the perfect combination of crushed tomato, basil and mozzarella on a thin crisp base spends 90 […]

724: (174/365) School Holidays!

Posted by wonko on June 23, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

After a brutally busy term, it is time to recharge, dance a little, be thankful for the good things that surround you: This is Jeremy Shafer’s “The Dancers” – a charming little pleating exercise that takes a square (in this case a 15cm Japanese foil square) and, via a clever set of collapses, isolates 2 […]

544: ‘Ball

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2016 in boxes, fantasy, geometry, paper |

Now apparently, when faces with a wee beastie, you throw a pokeball at it and that, somehow, traps the beastie …inside.. the ball for safe keeping – truly, I cannot make this shit up: This is Jeremy Shafer’s Pokeball – a genius modular fold using 2 bits of paper that interlock at the hinge, forming […]

518: Flasher

Posted by wonko on December 24, 2015 in geometry, paper |

I have had sheets of Elephant Hide for ages, and read that it was really good for geometric folding (corrugations and tessellations), so set out to find something I could do as fold therapy: Jeremy Shafer is a genius designer of origami action models and I had seen his series of collapsing “flashers” so thought […]

502: Super Dragon Deluxe

Posted by wonko on August 22, 2015 in dinosaur, fantasy |

Jeremy Shafer is a prolific and super talented Origami Designer: When I saw his video of the Super Dragon Deluxe I knew I wanted to have a go – such a fun “cartoony” dragon with a lot of detail packed into such an accessible fold.

There is always time to make a little peace in our world.It takes incidents like those that unraveled yesterday to realise that peace is a choice we make as participants of the world on which we live.

387: Happy Wedding Anniversary

Posted by wonko on April 2, 2012 in blarg, domestic |

April 2, a special day that Jo and I celebrate our Wedding anniversary: So I thought a schmaltzy, sentimental origami card was in order, so fashioned an origami “valentine” designed by Robert Lang (from “Origami Design Secrets”, a fantastic book). I had not tried this model and wondered how it was possible to sculpt both […]

278: Passing Notes

Posted by wonko on October 5, 2011 in domestic, geometry |

Now those who know me realise 2 things – I love music but I cannot read those little black dots on the lines for nuts: It was doubly problematic when I was in a choir as all those around me were able to sight-read and I … sort of … faked it (I have good […]

254: September 11

Posted by wonko on September 11, 2011 in bird, geometry |

For me, September 11 2001 was the day the world lost it, in a big way. Senseless acts of violence were met with years of senselessly violent retaliation and witch-hunts, government sanctioned genocide and publicly celebrated religious fanaticism. There were no winners – we as a species did little to justify our position atop the food chain: A symbol of […]

251: Infinity

Posted by wonko on September 8, 2011 in blarg, geometry |

Now in my quest to fold 365 models, one a day for a whole year, it seems like I have been doing this forever already. Not having an infinite amount of time, I thought I wold fold an INFINITY in paper: this is a rather ingenious pair of interlocking rings, the whole of which (hole […]
