Mask, by Joel Cooper


Mask, by Joel Cooper, originally uploaded by Origami Weekly.

Week 12, and we're running out of time again-- this time around, a tessellated mask by Joel Cooper. We've all been impressed by Joel's work, but like most of the tessellation community, he doesn't post creasepatterns for his models. I understand why-- this took me eight hours to reverse-engineer, and another four hours to draw the CP. In fact, we ran out of time to finish folding it-- which is why you get this picture instead of a finished one folded from nicer paper.

  4. Nice! I love Joel's work and something like this post is very interesting.

    I would prefer a step by step guide to fold a simple face, in order to see the creation process... but this is cool in anyway =P

    Congratulations!
