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.

649: (99/365) Brill’s Double Cube

Posted by wonko on April 9, 2017 in 365-2017 |

I am such a fan of David Brill’s work: His command of seemingly impossible geometry is complimented by the works of Francis Ow, the designer of the other “Double Cube” I have folded – a torturous skeletal structure.

642: (92/365) No Luck Involved

Posted by wonko on April 8, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

This fold was folded on our 34th wedding anniversary, chosen because a long and happy relationship is not reliant on luck: This dice is clever is a little obscure – rather than traditional dots each face has a partial coverage of colour.

634: (84/365) 3D Cube Illusion

Posted by wonko on March 25, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

Trolling around on the internet, as one does, I came across instructions for a 3D cube Illusion by Nick Robinson: I needed something that was relatively quick (times are busy, it was late) so thought I would give it a try.

631: (81/365) Four Cubes

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

Sometimes a modular is deceptively complex, this 6-part modular from David Mitchell is no exception: Four cubes, interwoven in evil ways has done my head in for days now, I simply could not (1) imagine the shape it was going to end up; and (2) make the modules connect in ways that made sense.
