Star spring

Size 8 x 8 x n cm

 

Creator : Shuzo Fujimoto

CP in book : Origami El Mundo Nuevo, by Kasahara, published 1989 by Sanrio(Japan), ISBN 4387892544.

 

This is a baby star spring : original model starts from square paper and has 10 stars. I was intimidated by the idea of collapsing points by rows of 10, so I reduced the thing to a rectangle 12/22.

 

Here you see 5 stars and 2 half-stars instead of the 6 I've planned, I probably made a wrong valley/mountain assignement during collapse, cannot read japanese instructions.

 

Nevertheless, I'm glad how it turned out. It is a wonderfull model, another side of Fujimoto's genius.

 

I don't know if it should be called a tessellation ? Maybe it is closer to box-pleating ?
