838: (288/365) Maine Lobster

Posted by wonko on October 15, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

A 365 Challenge is a mixture of blessing and curse: The relentless schedule amidst a full time job and part time life is challenging at times. I started this model last weekend but ran out of weekend before it was finished.

837: (287/365) Jackson’s Chameleon

Posted by wonko on October 14, 2017 in 365-2017, reptile |

Looking for a nice, rich, challenging fold for the day, I knew I needed to try a model from Robert Lang: This is his model “Jackson’s Chameleon” – a deliciously complicated model with all the chameleonic bits you expect. Working with a slightly un-square square of light green washi, the pre-folding is fascinating, layer management […]

698: (148/365) Cicada

Posted by wonko on May 28, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I must admit to enjoying the challenge that is inherent in most of Robert Lang’s designs: When the Tanteidan magazine arrived, I saw there was a new version of his cicada, and I knew I needed to try it. Starting with a 35cm square of Daiso washi (that turned out to be slightly rhombic problematically), […]

675: (125/365) Centipede

Posted by wonko on May 5, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Gagging for complex folds I thought I would torture a bit of paper with a super complex model from Robert Lang’s “Origami Insects II”: The paper survived and the resultant creepy crawley is interesting if not perfect. Missing steps and powering on, only have to backtrack, characterised this mammoth 6 hour fold. Some steps are […]

673: (123/365) Longhorn Beetle

Posted by wonko on May 3, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Itching to dive into some thing complex (365 challenges are lousy for this, the one fold a day schedule makes longer hauls really difficult), I decided on an insect from Robert Lang that I had not folded before: Folded nearly life-size, this is a longhorn beetle, a lovely little bug with seemingly ridiculous antennae.

672: (122/365) Lang’s Butterfly

Posted by wonko on May 2, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Continuing on the theme of butterflies, I could not go past this one, designed by Robert Lang: Taken from “Origami Insects II”, it is one of a number of creepy crawlys that I have yet to fold from this book.

561: (11/365) Robert Lang’s Minamimachi Butterfly

Posted by wonko on January 11, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I must admit to not having folded many butterflies – not sure why, hopefully this year I will remedy this situation: This is┬áRobert Lang’s Minamimachi Butterfly – I know it looks simple but there are some wonderfully complex techniques in it’s fabrication.

Orchid Shadowbox

Posted by wonko on November 30, 2016 in blarg, flower |

I love models by Robert Lang, I find I fold them when I need order, therapy, calm. This is a collection of his Orchids, described in his book “Origami Design Secrets”. Something about the mathematical elegance of this flower lends itself to careful modelling and pretty staging. I had a bunch of opalescent 6″ squares […]

521: Robert Lang’s Yellowjacket

Posted by wonko on January 17, 2016 in creepy crawly, nature |

Flipping through the book “Origami Masters – Bugs – How the Bug Wars Changed the Art Of Origami”, you cannot help but be frightened by this model: Robert Lang, mathematician, engineer and origami design genius in this model pushes the envelope of what is possible with paper on a number of levels. The book gives […]

488: Burr Puzzle

Posted by wonko on December 31, 2014 in geometry |

In the hiatus between receiving parts of the Ryujin to fold, I am always on the look out for something interesting to fold. I first saw Froy’s Burr Puzzle on the Hong Kong Origami Society’s forum and decided to give it a try.
