Origami Framed Stars Tessellation
Three dimensional origami tessellations are nothing new to the world at large, but they are still kind of new to me.
I've done a few. This is my latest. It turned out pretty nice.
It combines flagstone and 3D.
Unfortunately I was using discarded paper with a print out on it. So that distorted my photo of the bottom shape a little.
For a long time I took the approach that going 3D was a cop out. If I couldn't find new shapes and patterns in the paper that naturally flattened, then I wasn't really succeeding.
But, after having stumbled into a few 3D folds, I kind of came around to the idea that they're something new and exciting. A different sort of challenge.
Rather than grind on the same old same old, why not embrace a new experience and explore its possibilities. .
