I spent much of Saturday sitting on top of my kitchen island table – which doubles as my studio workspace – and folding curved pleats.
I kept finding that they made shapes which looked like faces to me, so I played around with some simple variations to see what I could discover.
There’s been a huge amount of wonderful curved folding happening in the origami world lately, and I’ve been watching from the sidelines – I figured it was time to get my toes wet.
I can see why it’s so appealing, the shapes are definitely different than what we get with straight-line folding. Much more complex and mysterious. I’m looking forward to more in-depth experiments in the future as time permits.
