Summary of year 2014

Talented artist 😉

Atelier Ilyere

In 2014, I had a very fun year at my new university, and made it into second year. I also had a nice new workspace in a location where I could obtain craft materials from the local market, but even then, I ordered a lot of new things to play with.

Jewellery was still the central theme for me, as I find it is much easier to complete a piece of jewellery in a short space of time than it is to complete an origami model. I also dabbled in sewing a little as well.

As for upcoming news, I currently have pieces for a new origami model coming up, as well as a drawing that I’ve done for a card playmat.

2014 Art Summary

January – Blue keyring charm (Link)

February – Tourmaline quartz pendant (Link)

March – 3D origami swan pencil pot (Link)

April –…

An Origami Christmas

(Repost from Atelier Ilyere, many days later, sorry!)

Hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas holiday so far. Before I left my house for the holidays, I spent a few days working on a small Christmas setup for the living room table.

3D origami is quite flexible and allows you to make lots of different kinds of models. You just have to get past the fact that glue is most likely involved and will have to be used, haha.

All you need to make this is basic knowledge of 3D origami assembly. You make a “base” of units of varying sizes, then flatten it out and add leaves by adding pyramids of pieces to certain areas. It’s quite hard to explain, but looking at models makes it quite clear.

P1010710

The tree trunk is a standard base of units that hasn’t been flattened out, but pushed towards the middle so it fits the gap.

P1010711

I also made small presents out of Sonobe units. If you want to, you could wrap wrapping and string around the cube to hide the cube, especially if the assembly is lacking, like mine, haha.

P1010712

I suppose you could also add pom-poms to the tree as decorations as well, I just didn’t have the time to. But I did make an origami star and glued it to the top of the tree.

P1010709

Materials: 192 green units, 30 brown units, two small Sonobe cubes, one yellow origami star, PVA glue

Kusudama “Mitsuya Kiriko”

(Repost from Atelier Ilyere)

I bought this book a year ago by Tomoko Fuse (布施 知子) called “Kusudama Origami – Hanakiriko” (くす玉おりがみ – 花切子). I can read what the Japanese says, but I don’t know what it means! Fortunately, the book uses diagrams rather than explanations to construct models, hence why I bought it. Some of the models are pretty impressive, and recently I managed to make some of the models.

This model is called “Mitsuya Kiriko” (三ツ矢切子) – Again, I don’t know if that translates to anything, so I just to the translated reading of the phrase. It uses six square pieces with eight triangular connectors to form the model. Cutting is definitely involved as you need both square and triangular pieces, however glue is optional. Personally I use glue to make it more secure.

P1010456I had two leftover pieces of the pattern chiyogami left, so I made Yoshizawa butterflies out of them (the v2 version) and made them hang off the coloured twine, with matching coloured beads.

P1010457I love how amazing it looks when the entire thing is done. It makes a lovely decoration to hang off a door handle or something.

P1010455Materials: Eight 7.5cm chiyogami squares, eight 7.5cm duo-coloured paper triangles, coloured twine, coloured beads, PVA glue

Rosebud and calyx kusudama

(Repost from Atelier Ilyere)

I’m part of a group on Facebook called “Origami Kids” (the group is open so anyone can view it) where people post their creations and/or tutorials on a regular basis. Quite a while ago, I came across a post about a rosebud and calyx tutorial (the tutorial creator and the person who designed the model can be found following this link) which teaches how to make a single unit, as well as how to stick units together.

I had to spend most of my time cutting the sizes of squares required before I could make a start. The tutorial is super easy to follow, making units will be no problem!

P1010453Assembly is by sticking sides of calyxes together. The tutorial does suggest using 14 units total, but I couldn’t make the model work like that. Instead, I improvised and made a kusudama using 12. Stringing it up is fairly easy too.

P1010454Materials: 12 4in squares of green paper, 12 3in squares of pink paper, PVA glue, coloured twine

3D origami swan pot

This particular project was started back in the first semester, when I had bought a large pack of white paper. I started making 3D units for the heck of it, and then thought it would make a nice swan. I’m made a stick-tailed peacock before and a phoenix, but not a plain old swan, funnily enough!

The general shape of the swan is up to you. For my own, I made the neck longer that the wings. I couldn’t quite shape the wings out well because I was gluing the pieces as I went along; it may be taboo to you, but it’ll hold together much better for me!

Don’t forget the orange and black piece to make the beak of the swan. 🙂

P1010210Now obviously, these pots tend to be hollow on the inside. If you want to transform it into a makeshift pot, cut out a circle that is slightly bigger than the very bottom of the base, then slip it through from the top and gently push the sides down to hold it in place.

P1010211Of course, this part is totally optional, but sometimes I like a little functionality in my decorations! Now my dear swan holds my pens and pencils for me. And because the wings are so close together, it kind of fans out the pens so it organises my collection pretty well, haha.

P1010212Another optional part, because I had a lot of leftover pieces to use up. I connected them all to make a ring for my swan to sit on top of. It’s only purpose really is to keep the base of the swan from pushing down too much. Quite often I’d find that the bottom row of the base tends to look different because it’s been pushed down too much. Well anyway, it just looks nice, haha.

P1010213Now just position your lovely swan on top of the ring. The total count of pieces used is 634 units!

P1010215Materials: 634 3D units (632 white, 1 orange, 1 black), PVA glue
