“Stairway to Heaven,” by Hans Schepker. Cut, scored, and folded by me in polypropylene, of course!

This was a pattern in a goodie bag of exchange gifts for the G4G7 Gathering for Gardiner Conference held annually in Atlanta. I didn't go, but when I saw the pattern I said to myself, “This reminds me of Ramin Razani’s stuff, which I love...I must contact Hans to get a PDF to ROBO it.” I sure wasn't going to manually cut-n-score this puppy! In fact, what's preventing me from making much of Razani’s work is that I’d have to redraw it from scan-scratch to make it ROBO-ready.

 

This took 1-1/2 hours to fold, but less than five minutes to minimally prepare the file for ROBO and then cut-n-score both sides. No X-Acto or scoring tool was used! Not even tweezers; only fingers.

 

Hans has many incredible sculptures, lamps, sliceforms, and other math- and art-related ephemera on his web site Glass Geometry.
