My Latest Folding

My Latest Folding

Here’s what I’ve been up to lately.

rest of post blatantly ripped from my flickr page:

So, I haven’t posted much origami lately. There’s a few reasons for this.

We had some family issues with surgery, and then with everyone being sick, which really isn’t all that is conducive to artistic creation. That’s been an ongoing problem for a few weeks, and thanks to those of you who gave me some support through that, I appreciate it.

…and the other thing is that I have been doing a lot of folding that just isn’t something that is worth sharing! I’ve been playing around with octagons, dodecagons, and other many-sided polygons and their various uses in making tessellation designs; however, much of my test folds are incomplete partial sections that are useful only for me, as a reference fold.

Hopefully all this playing around will yield some fruit, in the form of a larger tessellation of more complex shapes, but I’m not quite sure how that is going to come together quite yet.

I’m working on it, though- here’s a shot of the box of test folds I’ve been carrying around every day with me. I keep adding things to this pile, and then taking them away and putting them in storage at home, as ideas come and go.
