409: Wedding Blossoms

Posted by wonko on October 1, 2012 in domestic, flower, plant |

A little over a year ago, my daughter as part of the very early planning stages for her wedding asked (in only the way a daughter can) if we could do something different with the flowers: After much looking around, experimentation and reject schemes we came up with a 5-sheet rose (4 2×1 rectangles for […]

406: Zombie Uprising

Posted by wonko on September 23, 2012 in fantasy, humanoid |

Trapped in a particularly uninteresting supervision (I am a teacher, sometimes we have to supervise other teacher’s classes), I began bending paper unsure what I was going to make. First I fashioned a hand, devising some lovely slender (skeletal almost) hands and looked at the paper I had left and then it came ot me […]

396: Cutting Out The Deadwood

Posted by wonko on June 13, 2012 in plant |

It is rare that an idea comes to me so fully formed as this, but I was doodling with a sheet of copy paper and started thinking about forming an organic shape, initially by crumpling (which is sort of cheating) and later via pleats: Nature is odd, working in 3’s and 5’s looks much more […]

385: Beer Mug/TeaCup

Posted by wonko on March 31, 2012 in domestic |

… so I was thinking through a waterproof container, being inspired by a paper cup I dismantled from a water cooler, and came across this design: Working with an A4 page, and inscribing, via a simple half-third intersection and some simple geometric construction, an octagonal base, sides radiating from it and pleats to tuck away […]

384: Squiffy “Woombye” Larch

Posted by wonko on March 31, 2012 in humanoid |

Ladies and Gentlefolk, may I introduce young Squiffy Larch, “Woombye” to his friends: During a mad weekend, we visited Woombye Pub for a fantastic lunch and I noticed they put on their square tables, a beautiful big square of brown paper. Naturally I put 2 and 2 together and got 7, and decided it needed […]

380: Project Davros

Posted by wonko on March 4, 2012 in amphibian, creepy crawly, crustacean, humanoid, scifi |

I had this idea in my head that is should be possible to fold a DALEK (you know, that improbable plunger-wielding arch nemesis of Dr Who) from a single sheet of paper: I began over a two week period to explore the morphology of a Dalek, to come to the conclusion that it is most […]

377: Balthazaar Quercus

Posted by wonko on February 15, 2012 in humanoid |

So, it emerges that Dweezil has a little brother. Ladies and Gentleffolk, if I may introduce Master Balthazaar Quercus, aged 6¾: I was asked to liberate this cute little chap from the flat sheet of lithography paper he was trapped in as a parting gift for a colleague. Aware this may create precedent, this is […]

376: Langton Willow III

Posted by wonko on February 11, 2012 in blarg, humanoid |

Ladies and Gentleffolk, if I may be so bold as to introduce to you Mr Langton Willow III: …so I bought a lovely book about an Origamist I worship, Eric Joisel, and was scanning pages prior to an in-depth read and came accross what seemed like an impossibility – a dwarf in a box. There […]

365: Turn a New Leaf

Posted by wonko on December 31, 2011 in humanoid |

Our lives are a lot like a blank sheet of paper – WE decide when to put creases, who adds folds, how permanent they are and we are constantly given a fresh sheet to start over: This is my interpretation of Eric Joisel’s “Self-Made Man”, a little origami man that is folding himself and I […]

363: Tree of Wisdom

Posted by wonko on December 29, 2011 in bird, plant |

You know that feeling when you plan (and see quite clearly in your head) something and then it turns out exactly like you envisaged it? This is one of those moments: I had a model fail on a large sheet of lithography paper and considered binning the resultant crumpled mess, but remembered an origami technique […]
