## Lucky Star Fractals (10 different colors)

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 ...

Fractals are a class of mathematical objects which are characterized by self-similarity: a part of the object resembles the whole. Such structures can be approximated in origami using iterative folding or using modular origami techniques.

This page lists **models** of a single type. You might be interested in folding instructions instead.

Along with the other Clover Folding model, this is the oldest picture of a tessellation folded by me (taken in June 2015).

This is, along with Clover Folding, one of the oldest pictures of a tessellation folded by me (taken in June 2015).

Along with the Hydrangea, this is one of the oldest picture of a tessellation folded by me (taken in June 2015).

This is just a simple Hydrangea, designed by Shuzo Fujimoto, but I think it looks really nice in back light. Folded from Grünperga Kristall Prägo, a kind of ...

Model folded from transparent book wrapping fold which shows the internal structure of the model in an interesting way. Have a look at the detailed review of...

A minimalistic self-similar origami design, in the style of Edward Mistretta’s recent works.

This is the simplest recursive/fractal model I have come up with so far. It is folded from a square. Due to the very high shrinkage factor, which is almost 4...

This is a recursion of my Twisted Bird Base Tessellation. The recursive / fractal version looks interesting, but it’s rather hard to collapse.

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 ...

Rhombus Fractal, an origami tessellation designed by Endre Somos (and independently also by Joel Cooper and by Wei Fu), folded by me. You may also find inter...

A refold of my older design, Stacked Propellers Tessellation, this time as a complete tessellation rather than a single molecule.

This is my variant of Edward Mistretta’s model, Phantasma Fractal. It’s a nice design which can be folded as a single molecule, or tessellated.

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. J...

Happy New Year!

This is a fractalized version of my Propellers Tessellation. Stacked Propellers Tessellation is folded from a 16×16 grid per molecule in this case but you ca...

I designed this tiling of Shuzo Fujimoto’s Clover Folding after I saw the tiling by Peter Budai and thought it would be better to make the borders between mo...

This rendition of the Tower of Babel consists of a series of square platforms placed one on top of another and rotated by 45 degrees at each level. This frac...

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 ...

After I made a Hydrangea Cube, Hydrangea Icosahedron was the next logical step. Just as in the cube, the Hydrangea Tessellation by Shuzo Fujimoto is used as ...

I came up with the idea of connecting Hydrangeas to form a modular origami design independently, then found out Meenakshi Mukerji had published it in her boo...

Model uses 192 modules: 120 × A1, 72 × A2

The modules’ shape makes this level 1 model look even closer to a level 2 model than the Penultimate Module version. The hole in each small square is exactly...

This is a labor-intensive, but very satisfying to fold model. Some people have managed to go as far as level 3 but even level 2 was quite challenging. About ...

Model folded from Warsaw public transport tickets (back side with magnetic strip visible). 192 modules: 120 for the body and 72 for coating.

This model uses 128 Trimodules, forming 64 2-unit tetrahedra, and 126 links that connect them, for a total of 254 units. The links were made from narrow rec...

Thanks to the modules’ shape and the holes created in the spaces between them, this model looks almost like a level 2 Menger sponge even though it is actuall...

Compare also with level-1 version of the same fractal.

A level-1 Koch snowflake is just a simple hexagonal star, and this is the way of connecting the Trimodule units originally suggested in Nick Robinson’s instr...

This fractal is an analogue of the standard Koch snowflake. Level 0 is a tetrahedron. In each iteration, a tetrahedron with half the edge length is placed in...
