...... is patient




oder "Papier ist geduldig"

For some of my dear friends on Flickr, who don't fold and are curious of how the folding takes place, I decide to photograph some steps, to reveil "the secret", no just kidding ;-), it's really so nice to know you are interested.

First I cut out a hexagon out of a piece of paper, sometimes out of a square, sometimes out of a rectangle and then I start to make/fold the division of the grid that I need. This is somewhere in between......I still have to do a lot.

I used very thin paper with plenty of fiber, as you can see.... there is a very big one........ Because I wanted to see if I could tessellate this kind of paper...., always like a challenge........ to be continued.


Believe it or not, but you are looking at metallic wrapping paper, where the colors change all the time depending in which light you see it.

This wrinkled paper texture (ty lisabee73) I thought fitting for this sky image taken outside of Barnes & Nobles Book Store on Wolf Rd in Albany,NY.

Paper is great!! You not only can fold with it, but it is a beauty itself ;-))

We all start out as a blank page....

Orange washi paper served as background & is refracted in the drops. So is some rumpled-up coral fabric. I guess I should have removed it. Too late now.


Please no group invites!

"Now what do I do

With the sweet love of mine

Do I give it away and

Hope someday I'll find

Someone half as awake

As the moon and the stars

Mother, teach me to love

With a paper-thin heart"


I was skipping the challenge today, until my daughter dangled a paper clip chain in front of the low afternoon light :)

Paper dreams. the sense of sight.

Better, Lightbox.

There is just something about vintage paper that sparks my imagination. . .

The feel of it, the brown edges, how easily it tears, the smell, the print, and even how it is becoming obsolete. Photographed on a sunny day. Rainy and cold today.


Some days I sit here and stare at the screen without a thought in my head. My heart has a mini panic, then I think of something new.

lightbox please :-)

from this morning, as kids didn't want too much from me i had time to play :)


from pentagons, two different centers possible, do you have your favorite?

I saw a model like this at a friend's house and when I complimented her about it, she offered it for me to take it home and study it. I unfolded carefully and figured it out with some trial and error. I really like the center part which looks to me like a partially opened iris closure. I think Chris Palmer made a box with a decoration like that (this should be my next project).


EDIT: The friend who lent me the star contacted the guy who gave it to her and I updated the caption.

The Great Roberto


My first completed piece for 2010 :)

A group of paper wasps built their impressively hexagonal nest on the wall near the garage door in Bridgetown. They were very busy feeding their larvae and not too worried about me getting close so I was able to get a few interesting shots. Sadly the following day I saw some ants had found the nest and were crawling all over it - the wasps seemed very reluctant to do anything about the ants.

I figure paper ought to be among my whites this month! This pile of paper is a calendar with their photos my kids gave me for Christmas! I love turning up each day and seeing what it brings!
