I use a part of my house as workplace/exhibition space/studio for my
Origami and paper models.
I'm always working on new things / ideas, so the interior changes
still design new Origami flowers every now and then, always try to
find a nice spot for them to place:
I make most of my videos here:
The photo on the left is a background with a part of a
I used it for a video with me folding a tennis skirt.
And on the right I'm clearing stuff from a video with an Origami
WITCH HOUSE /
made this large Witch House out of cardboard and purple
papers, the height is about one and a half meters. I
decorated it with Horror and Witches related models.
lighthouse is also made out of cardboard and normal papers,
the height is about 1,5 meters. A
flat showcase with Origami Ocean models is hanging next to it.
the stairs I created a miniature palace with furniture and dolls in
Origami style. I
painted the stairs itself yellow and decorated it with large columns
and Origami flowers.
CASTLE ISLAND The
castle is made from a few hundred Origami bricks and the
roofs are placed on top of the towers using no glue or tape. Click
here for more info about the castle island The
dragon is folded out of a paper which is about 2x2 meters.
The witch is flying above the cemetery and she's wearing an
Origami witch hat.
THE KITCHEN Most
of my Origami food models end up at a nice spot in my kitchen:
This is a small dinner corner in 50's / 60's style:
MINIATURE CITY Sometimes I use the city as background for a video,
anything can happen: A traffic jam, bank robbery,
neighbours quarreling etc.
The setting keeps changing, because I regularly make new models
like cars, shops and skyscrapers.
I placed the ocean world themed box in a closet with
Pirates theme models.
FASHION I also enjoy designing Origami clothings
and other fashion related things, these are some
examples. Origami is very similar to making real
clothes, because making real fashion also uses
various folding techniques.
