## Quartered Box

A very simple box whose lid is divided into four identical squares. It is basically the back side of a single molecule of Four-Sink Base Tessellation plus wa...

Sometimes a model’s author or authors remain unknown. At the same time, it would probably be possible to determine them given enough work, so these models can’t be classified as traditional.

Lucky Star Fractal, level 3, folded from dark green Tant paper. This model is so nice I’ve folded it probably dozens of times (which rarely happens) and each...

I developed Shuzo Fujimoto’s design, Petals (CFW 85) into a fractal. I don’t have direct proof if Fujimoto was aware of this possibility, but I think it’s li...

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...

This is a fold of just a simple Four-Sink Base Tessellation but with additional space of one grid unit between molecules. Folded from a sheet of red Nicolas ...

This “translucent design” by Shuzo Fujimoto is an example of iso-area tessellations: both sides have the same pattern (except for rotation). The point below ...

This is a tessellation many origamists discover independently, though Fujimoto was probably among the first to do so. This tessellation is not featured as a ...

While my first fold of this variant was from a 16×16 grid, this one is from 32×32, which produces many more molecules and better shows how squares of two siz...

This variant of the Traditional Crane adds a color change along the axis of symmetry. It’s a very simple change, based on blintzing, and I’m pretty certain I...

A variant of Pythagorean Tiling with 1:1 size ratio between the sides of the two types of squares. This effectively makes the pattern uniform (all squares ar...

Ten level-3 Lucky Star Fractals, folded from metallic paper in different colors. This is just a small subset of how many times I have folded this model over ...

Several well-known edge units, for example Ow’s 60-degree unit or Simple Edge Unit can be thought of as special cases of a generic edge unit whose connection...

This model is the same as the first Pythagorean Tiling variant I folded, but the side length ratio of big squares to small squares is 3:2 instead of 2:1. As ...

This origami tessellation is built from the same kind of molecule as Pythagorean Tiling but molecules are arranged differently: in any pair of adjacent neigh...

The pattern this origami tessellation represents is known as Pythagorean Tiling or Two Squares Tessellation. I came up with this design independently, but it...

Recently, I came up with a family of patterns which result from placing four modified twists around the corners of a rectangle or square. Some variations are...

This is a level-7 Lucky Star Fractal, the largest number of levels I folded so far.

This is a tessellation of the Lucky Star Fractal. The standalone star was designed independently by several people, starting with Shuzo Fujimoto. I don’t kno...

This model is a variant of the Lucky Star Fractal (aka Logarithmic Star), designed by myself and independently by many others before me, starting with Shuzo ...

A level-3 fold of Lucky Star Fractal, this time from gray metallic paper. I rarely fold a model multiple times, but this particular model is so nice I have f...

This is a recursive version of the Lucky Star molecule. Just like the non-recursive version, it can be tessellated or used for decorating a box. The back of ...

Believe it or not, this tessellation is closely related to my Double Spearhead Tessellation.

An origami coaster with a pattern of leaves. After designing, I found out others had done the same before, for example you can check out this picture [update...

A single molecule of my Maltese Cross Tessellation, which is closely related to the Cross Pattee Tessellation presented in the Coat of Arms of Rzeszów model....

A modular version of this picture frame. Folded from 4 units, each from 1:2 paper.

This is my recent design for folding arbitrary bitmap images as origami tessellations. Unlike using four-sink-base (see Saturn Tessellation), each molecule r...

This is Grating Tessellation, a new origami design of mine. Vertical walls of the grating divide the whole plane into small cells which give this tessellatio...

I came up with this design while playing with variants of my Propellers Tessellation but then realized that many others had already come up with this pattern...

Welcome to 2016! This seven-segment display, executed in origami, shows the current year, and is folded from a single sheet of Elephant Hide paper. With a li...

This kind of tessellation is not very interesting in itself, but has been invented and used by many authors independently as basis for more advanced designs....

This tessellation consists of concentric square twists of growing size. The medium is self-adhesive holographic foil glued onto tracing paper. The spiral is ...

This picture frame can hold a standard 15×10 cm photograph. It consists of four molecules of the Hydrangea Tessellation (designed by Shuzo Fujimoto), spaced ...

Simple Edge Unit (SEU) was designed by me, and as I later learned, also independently by many other people before. It is quite a versatile edge unit with sev...

Sturdy Edge Module (StEM) was designed by me, and as I later learned, also independently by many other people before. It is a versatile edge unit and a speci...

I designed this simple unit myself but later learned that it had been already published before by Jose Arley Moreno. From a Facebook discussion I know at lea...

I think this is my first Sonobe variant. Since it’s one of the simplest modifications possible, it has probably been independently discovered by many others.

This is my simple modification of Tom Hull’s PHiZZ unit. I think I remember seeing the same modification somewhere on flickr which suggests others have come ...
