a return to old times

I folded this hexakaidecagon from a plain sheet of 15cm kami, like I used to do back when I started folding origami tessellations. It’s challenging paper to fold, as making 32 creases through the center point leads to a lot of paper turning to mush! Rather than folding a big twist, I twirled the excess into a spire shape, which I think is much more interesting and organic. It reminds me of the pagodas in Myanmar. thought I’d share this little fold with you, and enjoy the retro days together.

I’ve been very interested in this work from artist Rebecca Giesieking, particularly this latest piece, “Spiral Bowl”. Explorations of curved folds and organic structures are quite exciting to see. I look forward to her next work! -Eric   Spiral Bowl   Lidded Bowl Experiment with Diagonal Gores Octagonal Experiment Bowl
