Easily Create Origami with Curved Folds and Surfaces Origami—making shapes only through folding—reveals a fascinating area of geometry woven with a variety of representations. The world of origami has progressed dramatically since the advent of computer programs to perform the necessary computations for origami design. 3D Origami Art presents the design methods underlying 3D creations derived from computation. It includes numerous photos and design drawings called crease patterns, which are available for download on the author’s website. Through the book’s clear figures and descriptions, readers can easily create geometric 3D structures out of a set of lines and curves drawn on a 2D plane. The author uses various shapes of sheets such as rectangles and regular polygons, instead of square paper, to create the origami. Many of the origami creations have a 3D structure composed of curved surfaces, and some of them have complicated forms. However, the background theory underlying all the creations is very simple. The author shows how different origami forms are designed from a common theory.

Too hip to be square. Shape up with this mind-blowing set that--quite honestly--we didn’t even know was possible until our editors discovered the exquisite artwork of Heinz Strobl’s Snapology Project. Inspired by his work, our designers have created Geometric Origami, a new, sophisticated origami kit for advanced origami artists. Create 15 paper projects using the specially designed strips included in the set: Tetrahedron, Hexahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, Icosahedron, Truncated Tetrahedron, Cuboctahedron, Icosidodecahedron, Rhombic Triacontahedron, Snub Dodecahedron, Zonohedron, and Buckyballs. Don’t worry--there’s even a few pronounceable shapes like an Egg and a Geometric Bracelet, plus more surprises. (We would include them here, but we’re still looking up their proper spellings.) * Gain a whole new perspective on geometry and the world of origami. * Great fun for the entire family--or for your local geometry professor. Geometric Origami offers the next generation of art and paper crafting for origami enthusiasts.

Masterworks from 25 Leading Paper Artists

This origami art book features the work of 25 contemporary master folders who are among the most innovative origami artists working today. They are pushing the boundaries of origami vigorously in new directions in terms of style, scale, materials, subject and scope. This elite group includes: Joel Cooper Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine Paul Jackson Beth Johnson Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander Robert J. Lang Linda Mihara Bernie Peyton Richard Sweeney And many more… The stunning photos and brilliant essays in this book demonstrate why origami is now an international art movement—largely through the efforts and artistic genius of a few contemporary masters. The trailblazing efforts of Japanese artist Akira Yoshizawa elevated the paper folding to an art form by showing how subtle shapes and figures could be created from a single sheet of paper though a variety of non-traditional folding techniques. Artists in other parts of the world—including the United States, France, England, China and Scandinavia—took Yoshizawa's cue and pushed these techniques further and further. The result has been the emergence of many new and surprising sculptural forms created through techniques such as wet folding, curved creasing, tessellating and the application of alternative materials besides paper.

The Pleat Pattern Approach to Origami Tessellation Design

Get Started with Tessellation Folding Six Simple Twists: The Pleat Pattern Approach to Origami Tessellation Design explains the process of designing an origami pattern. It answers the questions "how is a tessellation folded" and "what are the further possibilities." The author introduces an innovative pleat pattern technique of origami design that is easily accessible to anyone who enjoys the geometry of paper. The book begins with basic forms and systematically builds upon them to teach a limitless number of patterns. It then describes a process of design for the building blocks themselves. At the end, what emerges is a fascinating art form that will enrich folders for many years. Unlike standard, project-based origami books, Six Simple Twists focuses on how to design rather than construct. This leads to a better understanding of more complicated tessellations at the advanced level.

The Origami Art of Folding Cloth to Create Decorative and Useful Objects

Fold decorative origami objects out of cloth with this easy-to-use origami book. Fabrigami is the Asian art of folding fabrics to create three-dimensional objects ranging from the practical to the whimsical. Like paper, there are countless beautiful fabric designs to choose from, only fabric has the virtue of being extremely durable. Fabrigami began as origami legend Florence Temko's final project. Everyone knows that origami is the art of paper folding, but Temko had begun experimenting with folding fabric to make objects that are just as beautiful but more lasting than paper. Sadly, Temko passed away before the book was completed, but her collaborator, Jill Stovall, continued their work. Now, Stovall—with the help of Scott Stern, a rising young star of origami—brings Fabrigami to print for everyone to use and enjoy. This origami book begins by presenting instructions on how to treat fabric so it holds a shape when folded. Then Stovall shares a series of fun craft projects with simple origami-style diagrams that you can use to make a range of lovely objects. Stiffening the fabric requires some practice, but the folds are all easy enough to be considered origmi-for-kids projects and are a great way to learn origami. Cloth origami projects include: Fan-tastic Fold Earrings Evening Wine Coat Florence's Hexagon Box Cloth Kimono Card Pleated Peacock
