so I’m doing a bit of googling for hexagonal tessellations and I found this page… which had photos of mine from flickr on it, and a link to me on the top. weird. http://www.taggling.de/tag/hexagon So I’m a little clueless as to how that happened, but whatever. I’m happy with having people look at my artwork, it’s not like I’m putting it online to keep it secret or anything! I need to make a point to mention origami in every post, too, so it shows up in technorati and other pages like that. I’m just a sucker for attention. origami tessellations right here, people!
new star tessellation, with chiyogami paper Originally uploaded by Origomi. part 2 of 2- this time with some chiyogami paper (that’s like saying chai tea- redundant. but I’m saying it anyway.) my adorable wife needs some of these to make me a spiffy origami scrapbook, so I’m going to fold a few more. I think they’d make some nifty little pins if I shrunk the fold down a bit smaller. I think I’d have to lacquer them or something… not sure how I’d go about doing that. I’ll leave it to the jewelry pro of the house and stick to what I do best. (which ISN’T that!)
star twist, folded from flecked momogami paper. Originally uploaded by Origomi. star twist- one of a set of two. like the flecked paper, although most of the shiny metal bits are on the back. nice look, though. I dig it. The diagrams for this are available online here.
hexagon star twist, backlit Originally uploaded by Origomi. this one gets 15 degree long, sharp points, and is kind of fractalicious in how it iterates each turn around. need to work on it with larger paper and see how it folds out.
pinwheel tessellation, backlit Originally uploaded by Origomi. psycho pinwheel action… clicky to flickr and look at the whole set. not too shabby I think. needs nicer paper, but as always this was the intro piece, so I used scrap for it.
