Origami tessellations


I seldom try origami these days despite an enthusiasm for it when I was younger, but I still like to see how people are developing the artform. These tessellation designs are part of a sub-genre of abstract paper-folding that’s a long way from the traditional Japanese animal shapes. The examples here are by Ray Schamp from his Flickr set. There are many more examples at the Origami Tessellations Flickr pool.

    Yes, I linked to those in the weekend links for May 8th. I wish I’d thought of it!

    My 8 year old daughter loves doing flower shaped origami from napkins that her grandmother taught. Obviously not up to this level but it’s a start.
