return to old times

I folded this hexakaidecagon from a plain sheet of 15cm kami, like I used to do back when I started folding origami tessellations. It's challenging paper to fold, as making 32 creases through the center point leads to a lot of paper turning to mush!

 

Rather than folding a big twist, I twirled the excess into a spire shape, which I think is much more interesting and organic. It reminds me of the pagodas in Myanmar.

 

thought I'd share this little fold with you, and enjoy the retro days together.
