I like designing new models very much, and also working out new ideas I
have in my head.
I noticed that by working out new ideas/models each time, I gradually
got better the last few
years. These are some examples of new models I designed and other
funny origami experiments.
This is an experiment with a technic
lego construction making origami planes, bombs and
clouds move. The picture on the left shows the prototype and the
picture on the right shows
the final 3d origami tv. All models move
on just one engine only.
This is also a technic lego experiment:
A large cage with moving origami parrots.
The picture on the left shows the lego
construction, it all moves on just one
This is a project with
moving origami, a wind vane made of 100% paper.
The propellor rotates very fast, if
there's wind enough. This could be a nice engine
for my yet-to-build origami factory ;)
(way to much new ideas)
Here I've tried to design a dollar bill Statue of Liberty.
I've used white paper first, before making the model with real dollars.
are folded money models of a Mexican man and the queen of England.
they do look pretty nice.
Maybe I have to work them out a little further.

'MEXICO' wasmore visible on the sombrero.

bea little larger or more visible.
Carton is great for making cupboards and small tables. I use wrapping papers or crepe paper
to cover the dull carton, so the furniture gets a nice and fresh look.

This underwater world is placed on a small table which is made
of carton boxes and I use made out of carton. I
use it to store out of

wrapping papers to cover
the carton boxes.
I made a draft drawing for this 3d painting with
the computer first, to see if the fishes fitted well
between the yellow birds. Then I started
making the complete painting.
It's actually still a sort of prototype,
but I have placed it in my shop/museum already.
I am making an origami alley from my stairs to the upper floor.
The bricks are glued to the wall. I am going to use paper with a sort of
stone-print to cover the wooden stairs. Then I will cover the printed
paper with plastic foil. Just a few hundred more bricks and
Origami Fashion - Make paper clothes
Making real clothes often uses folding techniques which are very similar
to Origami. This skirt is a good example.
I'm designing a pleated tennis skirt here, it's almost done.
The high heel shoe is almost done too, the heel needs to be a little more
pointy and the toe box is still open.
These are three first steps in designing a Unicorn head:
This is going to be an Unicorn head which you can place on
a table or use as pencil topper. Almost done, the neck still
needs a few adjustments.
are design-pictures of models which I've used for one of my books.
Mostly, I use plain white paper to design new models. When I think a
good enough in white, I start remaking it with coloured papers.
This tiger and cat look pretty nice, they only
need a pair of ears:
one looks like a cat too, but the back is not good yet, because of the
I think this cobra looks pretty good.
This flower is almost finished, I only need to
find a good coloured paper for it.
This one looks like a frog, but the body is not
thick enough yet.
I tried to design an origami book here, but I
finished with a kirigami book, because I used
scissors to make it. It's more difficult than I thought to design an
This one looks like an ox, but there's still a big
gap on top of the model.
looks like a beaver, but maybe it's just because of the color of the
paper I used.
This is an origami cow. I think this can be a good
model after a few little adjustments.
This is a flower with eight petals, I think it
good. Maybe the center should be a little different.
I tried to design another flower with eight petals. Maybe the petals
are a bit to edgy.
Here I tried to design an origami lizard, but I
difficult to get a longer tail, this tail is still to short.
Maybe the basic-shape of the model is not good for a long tail.
