Many of Shuzo Fujimoto’s stars are built around tessellation molecules, and thus can, with a simple transformation, be tessellated. For some cases I was able to find direct evidence that Fujimoto did fold the tessellated version, but for others, including this model derived from his star Petals (CFW 85), I was not. Still, if I was able to come up with the tessellated version, it is quite likely, evn if not certain, that so was Fujimoto himself. I’m also pretty sure I have seen this molecule being used by others in their tessellations.

Model folded from a sheet of decorated Washi I received courtesy of Satoko Saito. I almost ruined the sheet when I decided to iron it and melted the glue holding the gold and silver streaks — you can see they are now surrounded by ugly borders.
