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.

632: (82/365) Spiral Snail

Posted by wonko on March 23, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

Inspired by the work of Tomoko Fuse, I began experimenting with a square and using most of it to do a spiral. Initially I tried even divisions but found a more logarithmic progression from wide to narrow worked best: Using alternating mountains and valleys, a lovely spiral emerged and there was enough paper to fashion […]

585: (35/365) Many Hands Make Light Work

Posted by wonko on February 4, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, geometry |

As a teacher and pastoral care “tutor”, I am always looking for ways to get kids working together. At the beginning of the year the tutor group room is a mixed-year level (6-12) mixture of strangers and established friends so “GTK” exercises (Getting To Know you) are great icebreakers if you can get them actually […]

493: FuseBall

Posted by wonko on February 7, 2015 in blarg, geometry |

They say “many hands make light work” and they (whoever “they” are) are quite correct: My pastoral care group (the Mighty Magee F) and I folded Tomoko Fuse’s Icosahedron Kasudama, as part of a “getting to know you” exercise to start off the year, with the theme “the sum of the parts is greater than […]

486: Little Turtle Kusudama

Posted by wonko on December 14, 2014 in geometry, paper |

A dear friend (*waves to Caff) holidayed in Europe, visited Florence and found some amazing block-printed handmade paper, popped it in a post pack tube and mailed it to me. To be honest, I have struggled to use this paper┬ábecause it seemed a such a terrible shame to cut it. Lovely irregularities, vibrant colours and […]

386: Dimple Ball

Posted by wonko on March 31, 2012 in geometry |

Looking for a neat, colourful use for a batch of poor quality origami paper I had, I stumbled across a modular dimpled sphere: The paper cracked and spilt in ugly ways, so I had a good wrestle to actually construct this. Interestingly, when complete it became quite rigid and strong but prior to the last […]

287: Fuse Box (Small Flowers)

Posted by wonko on October 15, 2011 in boxes, geometry |

Tomoko Fuse is a genius in designing intricate boxes: this is called “Small Flowers” because of an incidental pattern the overlapping edges make, sort of looks like aflower. I made it in colour only because a monochrome version would not have been remarkable. The lid and the base are each comprised of 4 pieces of […]

276: Nautilus

Posted by wonko on October 3, 2011 in crustacean, geometry, nature |

Tomoko Fuse is undeniably a genius, her work with exacting spiral forms unequalled: This is her “Nautilus”, a lovely recursive form that, after the pre-creasing, almost folds itself. Elegant and graceful curve, perfectly planned pleats and a tidy shell end make this model a keeper for sheer geometric beauty alone. I want to pretend that I go […]

237: Fuse’s Triangle Box

Posted by wonko on August 25, 2011 in boxes |

Tomoko Fuse is renowned for her intricate boxes – this one is a version of her triangle box: A modular, top and bottom each made up of 3 modules that interlock and lace together to create a curious container I must explore these modular boxes some more, when I have more time, quite happy with […]

231: Tomoko Fuse’s Snail

Posted by wonko on August 19, 2011 in creepy crawly, geometry |

Now I found a collection of spirals and boxes by paper legend Tomoko Fuse, and the snail looked hoopy, so I decided to fold it: A relatively simple fold, with an elegant curved pleat forms the shell and a simple shape for the foot topped off with lovely eye stalks. If I was to fold […]
