795: (245/365) Tessellated Fractal

Posted by wonko on September 2, 2017 in 365-2017 |

Further exploring Shuzo Fujimoto’s “Hydrangea” fractal, it seems they can also be tessellated: This is a 4x fold, but I have seen many many more, closer together also, interweaving and other mind-boggling combinations. This fold has taken an age – started 4 days ago, finished yesterday (I had already decided on the spring shoot for […]

725: (175/365) 145 Point Sea Urchin

Posted by wonko on June 25, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

So I ended up scoring an unexpected free afternoon so decided that serious paper torture would be fun: Gridding then a breathtaking collapse took 4 hours to begin with. I knew I was up for a marathon fold to finish. Annoyingly I did not get this finished before fatigue took me – sometimes you get […]

710: (160/365) Star Luisium Test Fold

Posted by wonko on June 9, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry |

The internet is an amazing thing, it affords connections between mortals and luminaries in the field: I noticed Sara Adams (a living legend in the Origami World) was asking for test folders to test diagrams she was drawing and I immediately put my hand up.

625: (75/365) Mariposa

Posted by wonko on March 16, 2017 in 365-2017, creepy crawly |

I must admit to liking folding insects in Origami – something about the extreme paper wrangling necessary to separate out features from the sheet is a great challenge: This is Eduardo Clemente’s “Mariposa” or Butterfly. An interesting fold indeed.

593: (43/360) Neal Elias’ “Andres Segovia”

Posted by wonko on February 12, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

When a member of the British Origami Society, I purchased “Selected works of Neal Elias” and continue to find gems within it – this is one such treasure: Modeled after a classical guitarist in 1970, this model starts with a 3×1 rectangle (8×23 to be exact) and, via miracles of box pleating (a pioneering technique […]

3D Photography Using Fyuse

Posted by wonko on October 8, 2016 in blarg |

A friend (waves at Roland!) excitedly showed me a new app called Fyuse that allows you to scan objects and create  interactive 3D photos of them. For ages I have been increasingly unhappy with flat photos of really complex origami models and this tool seems to solve that problem, so long as the lighting is ok. […]

528: Joisel’s Pangolin

Posted by wonko on May 2, 2016 in animal, blarg, geometry, mammal, paper |

Few Origami models reach Iconic status, few have the charm and grace of Eric Joisel’s Pangolin. I thought I would have a go at this fold: Based, in part, on a field of diagonal graduated pleats that are “popped” into scaley plates, shaped simply to suggest tail, head and feet, his folds have a unique […]

523: Francis Ow’s Double Cube

Posted by wonko on February 7, 2016 in geometry |

I seem fixated on modular origami at the moment (a branch I have not really done very much in). When I saw Francis Ow’s Double Cube, I asked him if I could have a go at folding it: He generously shared some instructions with me (how amazing is the Internet – it can put you […]

498: Koh’s Rabbit

Posted by wonko on July 6, 2015 in animal, mammal, nature |

Every so often a model emerges that has such a naturalistic form that so perfectly represents the subject. This lovely rabbit, designed by Ronald Koh is one such “must fold” figure: This lovely model is a dense fold (the hind quarters are necessary layer-dense to form the necessary flaps for the head), so thin paper is […]

497: Tyrannosaurus Rex

Posted by wonko on June 2, 2015 in dinosaur |

I have been on holiday, 6 weeks is a long time between folds but I thought I would ease back into it with a simple model … then I saw Fumiaki Kawahata’s TRex and thought “screw it”: Waiting in my kept mail was the last Tanteidan of the previous subscription, thie little beauty on the […]
