The Brazier

I’m not entirely sure why I find this model compelling. The proportions are pleasing and it reminds me of Philip Shen, the way it suddenly locks together at the end. I would call it simple, but it is manifestly not. The lines are simple. The pre-folding is persnickety — fussy, if you will — and […]

The QR Code Bug

This is a QR code bug. It is really just a waterbomb with legs, skinny bug-like legs. What makes it interesting is that it has two ways of reproducing itself. The first is the ordinary way most origami models use to reproduce — folders share them, either by teaching in person or through diagrams and […]

Curvaceous Cube!

These are Persimmon Boxes, so named because of a paper by Naoko Takeda which discusses, among other things, self-locking kaki folds. Kaki, you see, is Japanese for persimmon. A good read, that. I’ve been experimenting with these kaki folds this week and decided I had been using them for a while now, but it’s good […]
