759: (209/365) Takashi Hojyo’s Dragon

Posted by wonko on July 28, 2017 in 365-2017, dinosaur |

Leafing through the Tanteidan Convention book #5, I came across an early Dragon design by Takashi Hojyo: This model is a modular – 3 parts (head/tail, body/legs and lovely wings) made from the same sized square, it needs glue (shhhh, I used a couple of nubs of double-sided tape) to keep it together but has a […]

748: (198/365) Brill’s Square Silver Star

Posted by wonko on July 17, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Busy times indeed – perfect for folding a 12 piece modular: Fairly simple modules that sit over one, inside another adjacent module, locking fairly positively into swirls of 4 “petals”, you get a shape that describes a cube when you look just at the points.

734: (184/365) Cube from Thirds

Posted by wonko on July 3, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Sometimes you need to fold a modular, and sometimes that modular really needs to be a 12 part construction: This is “Cube from Thrids” designed by Tung Ken Lim, a simple windowed cube that works well with a 3-colour scheme.

729: (179/365) A Whole Lotta Love

Posted by wonko on June 28, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Searching for daily folds, O came across an interesting 6 part modular cube that has much development potential: each face features a colour changed heart but I imagine that with a little inventiveness you could fashion diamonds, spades etc, or other things as the basic module solves the problem of liberating colour-changed flaps rather nicely.

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.

710: (160/365) Star Luisium Test Fold

Posted by wonko on June 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

The internet is an amazing thing, it affords connections between mortals and luminaries in the field: I noticed Sara Adams (a living legend in the Origami World) was asking for test folders to test diagrams she was drawing and I immediately put my hand up.

697: (147/365) Flowered Window Cube

Posted by wonko on May 27, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

Tomoko Fuse is a living legend in the Origami Community, her designs are numerous, intricate, ingenious and challenging to fold: This is a 12 part modular with double-locks, frilly bits and framed holes in each face.

692: (142/365) Wu’s Modular Chess Board

Posted by wonko on May 22, 2017 in 365-2017, domestic, geometry |

Looking around for a chess board in origami was fun, there seem to be a few out there, including a few that use only 1 sheet of paper and a million creases to perform the necessary colour changes for the squares: I discovered I could not source paper large enough to make a playable chess […]

676: (126/365) Stellated Octahedron

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

I am always on the lookout for a striking modular to fold when I am idle at work. This beauty – two tetrahedrons mating, was an obvious choice: I have folded much more complicated versions of things like this – made with lots of little pieces each having different angle connectors. Ilan Garibi appropriates Francis […]

651: (101/365) Naomiki Sato’s Sakura

Posted by wonko on April 11, 2017 in 365-2017, flower |

On the the pleasures (there are many) of visiting Japan at the moment is the onset of spring, and the flowering of cherry blossom trees: I remember vividly the glorious show, in colours from deep red to white/lemon, trees around Kyoto and Miyajima being particularly lovely.
