This Leafless Hydrangea model is a simple modification of Shuzo Fujimoto’s Hydrangea. It’s interesting how a simple change can modify a model’s appearance. Just folding back the petals makes this tessellation look more like some mechanical device than a flower.
I folded this model in order to test a new kind of paper which I ran into at a local art supply store in Warsaw, Poland. It’s Fabriano Palatina paper and I wrote down my first impressions in a blog post.
