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 […]

418: Kamiya’s Golden Retriever

Posted by wonko on December 8, 2012 in animal, domestic, mammal |

As soon as I knew Satoshi was due to release a new book, I knew I had to have it: This is the first fold of my first model from “The Works of Satoshi Kamiya 2”, and it is quite recognisably a Golden retriever/labrador.  For anyone who has been blessed with a lab in their […]

413: Satoshi’s Minotaur

Posted by wonko on November 3, 2012 in fantasy, humanoid, mammal |

Determined to try something harder, I had flagged satoshi Kamiya’s Minotaur a “must try eventually”: I also wanted to try my new “envelopener” – an ingenius paper cutter from The Origami Shop that splits a page on a crease – being frustrated at not being able to cut a straight edge easily on large format […]

412: Satoshi’s Coelophysis

Posted by wonko on October 27, 2012 in dinosaur |

I have many designs for dinosaurs, few more elegant that the Coelophysis designed by Satoshi Kamiya This raptor has a marvellous stance, gracious body proportions and a menacing appearance – quite a feat given it started as a square cut from A3 copy paper. A very well designed model indeed, quite dense in places but very economical with […]

372: Satoshi’s Wizard

Posted by wonko on January 26, 2012 in humanoid |

Now I hate it when things get the better of me. Mid year I tried this model only to have it disintegrate in my hands half-way through amid a flurry of swearing: This is Satoshi Kamiya’s Wizard – well, my rendition of it at least. It is fairly faithful to the instructions and I am […]

352: Satoshi’s Ancient Dragon

Posted by wonko on December 18, 2011 in dinosaur |

Some folds are good for telling you that you still have much to learn – this is one of them: An ASTONISHING model, that took me an age to almost achieve, so many different techniques and punishing to the paper. I started yesterday morning with a 60cm square of brown paper determined to keep folding […]

349: Orca

Posted by wonko on December 15, 2011 in fish, mammal |

Now I have gradually come to realise that captive cetaceans must lead a miserable life – dolphins particularly given tehy “see” with sonar, but the Orca is also something that does not belong in captivity: This is Satoshi Kamiya’s Orca, well my go at it – for the most part it worked but there are […]

344: It’s A Unicorn, Joyce

Posted by wonko on December 10, 2011 in humanoid |

A dear old friend is not well, but likes Unicorns – what better example of such a beastie is Satoshi Kamiya’s model: This has been an all day affair – started this morning before I went out, some more in the late afternoon then finishing off after coming home from dinner out. Satoshi suggests a […]

337: Hercules Beetle

Posted by wonko on December 3, 2011 in creepy crawly |

Woke up, brain would not stop, so thought I would punish it with a super complex Satoshi Kamiya model: This is his Hercules Beetle and it is snarly to fold indeed – even at this scale (I started with a 54cm square) there are terribly fiddly bits. The details here are a little dizzying – […]

323: Satoshi’s Smilodon

Posted by wonko on November 19, 2011 in dinosaur, mammal |

The smilodon is often called the “Saber-toothed Tiger” but is not a tiger at all: This lovely (extinct) beastie is a Satoshi Kamiya masterpiece, a real exercise in restraint – resisting the urge to set creases early to get nice, rounder shapes later. I had no idea what was what with this model – as […]
