Recently Made

A while back I was perusing this thread on and got inspired to build another one of Johan Scherfts bird models. This is one of his earlier kits and I wasn’t super happy with the results, but it’s okay. I made a stand for it from a piece of branch and a piece of wood I had in the shop. I also bought Johan’s latest book, Beautiful Paper Birds.

I’m looking forward to making those.

More recently a post on got me browsing the work of Cristian Marianciuc. The things he’s done with simple origami cranes are brilliant. I had to try some of his ideas myself and made these two cranes. I did each wing slightly differently to experiment. I plan on creating a downloadable pattern that I’ll post here when it’s ready.
