919: Floral Perpetua by Dasa Severova

Posted by wonko on February 13, 2018 in 365-2017, geometry |

I am always on the lookout for interesting folds, this one was shared on a fakebook group as a photsequence on Flickr: A fun folding technique, and a fascinating fractal pattern gradually converges towards the centre of the original octagon.

903: (353/365) Slippery Little Sucker

Posted by wonko on December 19, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, creepy crawly, nature |

I must admit to being a bit of a fanboy when it comes to the works of Satoshi Kamiya. His designs are genius, fabulously complicated to fold and make good use of the sheet: This is his Octopus – an amazing fold from an octagon that yields lovely little legs, a beady set of eyes […]

For some reason the republic of Australia still has ties to a monarchy that is completely irrelevant to us but somehow, ultimately, still controls aspects of our government: I decided to celebrate the public holiday (yay, I accept the holiday, just reject the reason) by folding a crown.

Folding Algorithms – Sato Rose

Posted by wonko on January 20, 2014 in blarg, flower, geometry |

Much of Origami is algorithmic (algorithm = procedural solution to a problem). A rabbit ear is an algorithm, one knows how to fold it on a corner – double rabbit ear is the same solution, folded two simultaneously. Petal fold is also a standard maneuver which got me thinking of the Sato Rose algorithm. I […]

420: Kamiya’s Diamond

Posted by wonko on December 10, 2012 in geometry |

I have been exploring folded regular polyhedra, but came across this, a brilliant cut faceted diamond by Satoshi Kamiya and thought I would give it a go: As a first fold, this is pretty sloppy to be honest – only after finishing it did the geometry I was laying down in pre-creases make sense. I […]
