Mélisande folds Jane’s Flor (flower) model, using some of the wonderful precreased paper she received as a gift.
I like this model for many reasons, but the best reason is the various underlying geometries- when you look at it in different ways, it takes on different kinds of shapes.
I really like the levels of shading and play of color on this- it seems so very complex and many-layered!
the 3d triangle polyhedra pleat-intersection really goes a long way to heightening the depth and light-play of this piece.
here are the other photos of this work, too:
This is a really nifty tessellation. Great balance of pattern and depth. I like the raised triangles at the 120 degree intersections. Great paper too, what kind is it?
I’m not sure what sort of paper it is; she sent me a small tessellation folded out of this same paper, so I’ll check it more carefully tomorrow and see if I can find out.
Or, you could leave a comment on the flickr page, and most likely she will see it…
