Tessellation (Shuzo Fujimoto)

Tessellation (Shuzo Fujimoto)

It’s been some time since I folded and I haven’t really got into the routine of folding. I tried out this tessellation by none other than the master Shuzo Fujimoto and I quite like the way it has turned out.

There is a lot of pre-creasing required and which is expected with folding a tessellation. However, once you get the hang of the technique, its gets done pretty quickly.

 

Paper to use:

I have used a 15cm square sheet of Kami for my rendition – single side colored.  This design took me about an hour and a half to fold, but thats only because I had to reopen and fold the whole thing whilst I was half way through because of a mistake.

You can try folding this design with Tant, Tissue Foil or any other paper which is not too thick – this is because of the layers of folds which are generally associated with tessellations.

 

How to fold this design:

While no instructional video or freely available diagram exists for this model, you can nevertheless get the diagrams from the book  - Hortensia Origami –  which you can buy from Nicolas Terry’s Origami Shop.
