My Secret Archive of Origami in Florida.

I recently went to Florida to visit my parents since I haven't seen them in a while. While I was there, I remembered my parents had a bunch of my origami sitting in their basement. I thought I should take advantage of this opportunity to take pictures for ArnoldsOrigami. Some of my pieces didn't survive storage which made me a little sad, but all of my favorites did. I tried my hardest to take good pictures of them, and I think they turned out well. 

 

Almost all of the tessellations were made from Eric Gjerde's Origami Tessellations: Awe-Inspiring Geometric Designs, an excellent book which comes highly recommended...I am recommending it...to you. The tessellation located in the fourth column and fourth row of the above picture is of my own design.

 

The modular works in this collection are shamelessly taken from Tomoko Fuse's Unit Origami: Multidimensional Transformations. I love this book. There are a lot of designs in it that are really fun and easy to make. The real strength of this book is the versatility of many of the units. One of my friends has taken the pinwheel unit to downright dangerous extremes. He has titled it "The Never Done" because he has been continually adding to it for several years now (on and off). 

 

In the last column, second row, is an icosahedron made using a special kind of modular origami called snapology. I have a few more projects in the works using this very technique, so expect an update with more of that soon.

 

Finally, if you look at the first column, fourth row, you will see an interesting "molecule" based off of Fuse's pinwheel unit. I have a project in the works that will take advantage of this very carbon like behavior. I am still hammering out the color scheme, but I hope to have it finished by the summer.

 

In the meantime, go check out all the new photos I have added!
