Conch shell

Posted in Origami by sausheong on October 9, 2006

This conch shell is from Toshikazu Kawasaki again, from the book Origami for the Connoisseur by Kunihiko Kasahara and Toshie Takahama. It is folded from a single piece of square paper, from an A4 sized copier paper (recycled from old printouts of Java articles). It took me about 30 minutes to fold this. It’s not too difficult though it looks a bit daunting at first. Thanks to Pierre for lending me the book! I need to get a copy of it for myself :(
This is the top view.


This is the almost-side view.

    Great job! My attempt didn’t go that far, so don’t trust Sau Sheong when he says “it’s not too difficult”…

    Good post. I just found this Origami-inspired Twitter icon at Digg, which you can use on your blog if it is running WordPress.
