Eric Gjerde's model with some more holes in it. Embossed and cut with a KNK Zing. Another time, I think I'd fold the grid and then cut the holes. Gridding holey paper is not the easiest thing one can do.

Extended version of Rhombic Flowers 3.

Similar to the little one I choice a different molecule to be the centre and again you get three different "Big" ones, although you see that they are related.

Folded from a hexagon 34cm, grit 1:48, glassine.

made from very special custom paper of my own design and manufacture...

 

look closely for some interesting details in the fibers.

Put Rhombic Flowers 1"Big" and 3"Big" together and the result is this or this one.

Packing everything up here at home- I'm moving to France next week. What a change, eh?

 

There will be lots of random travel over the next few months but that's the long and short of it.

 

So much origami here to be dealt with... the above is one of the boxes full of things to be sent over.

 

Looking forward to this new chapter in my life! Thanks to all of you whose support and assistance made all of this possible.

 

See you all across the pond!

Crease pattern is, of course, from Eric Gjerde's model.

Same as a previous one, with glassine paper instead of EH and smaller size.

Painted the paper with acrylics. Aim was to design a paper especially for Four-and-five. I used adhesive tape to prevent the paper from wrinkling, fault: ripped the paper such that I had to cut it smaller :-( So I folded the water bomb tesselation instead and tada like the result nonetheless.

Tessellations got me hooked instantly. So here's my second one. The folds itself were easy, but I had to concentrate to get all directions right.

I folded a large version of my "Moorish Stars" pattern, for the Polish Origami Convention in Krakow last weekend. You can download the pattern for this design here: www.origamitessellations.com/2012/02/moorish-stars-crease....

Having liked the effect of the harmony paper on the test molecule I folded, I went along and painted a strip in a similar fashion.

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.

folded from a sheet of my bio-paper, created from a custom bacterial process I developed. Grown to this size and then processed and pressed.

Got the book for christmas and couldn't help starting right away.

Paper was not too good, it ripped quite easily.

Nonetheless o.k. for a first try and much fun to fold.

On display for the Origami Chile exhibition last weekend at UDLA in Santiago.

revisiting earlier designs for an upcoming exhibition; this piece is destined to be cast into a 3D polymer.

Larger version out of painted glassine. I thought it won't stand painting, but it did surprisingly well. It made folding of the glassine not easier though.

A CP for the hinged Cairo Tessellation. Created to fit easily into a square grid, using traditional Islamic architectural reckoning for approximating angle relationships.

Front. Makes a nice model, even with that small number of grid squares. Paper was a bit thick which made squashing hard.

Why just tessellating squares or hexagons? An equilateral triangle is a nice variety :-)

Two different cover artworks I have done recently- just received proof copies in the mail this week. Very pleased with how they came out!

 

I enjoy doing artwork for book covers and interiors; it's fun to see how designers use my pieces in new and interesting ways.

We've been making loads of plaster casts of origami models, for an upcoming exhibition/show in Strasbourg next month.

 

These are raw, unfinished casts; they still need to finish drying, then some sanding, trimming, shaping, etc. Followed by various paint treatments and possibly some gold leaf work.

Folding a large triangular grid, from a one meter sheet of elephant hide. This film is speeded up 20x, but you can easily see my folding process for creating a triangular grid. Folding to 8x divisions, although the process remains the same for further divisions- just keep dividing each pleat in half.

 

This particular elephant hide was 125gsm, so it's a little thicker than normal, and requires more pressure and care to get an accurate crease. It's easier with thinner paper!

all 42 meters, folded and collapsed. Still awaiting final assembly (it's in 4 10~ meter segments).

 

This is literally 3km of creases, 19,000 folds, 42 meters of paper, and I have no idea how many hours of time. lots.

 

This stack of paper is about 1m cubed.

 

more photos when the installation is complete next Friday!
