In an effort to get my house back(!), i’m having a clear out of duplicates and some books i’ll never use again, plus some of the weird and wonderful origami “things” I’ve picked up over the years. It’s also the sole site for Hans Werner Guth’s superb wooden folding tools.
I provided artwork and expertise to the Tork paper towel company for their Linkedin page. My hand were too “rough and industrial” for the video, so a younger model followed my folding cues. Watch the videos here.
I was commissioned by Museums Sheffield to help supply origami doves for an event they were organising. I supplied instructions and they had a team of volunteers making smaller birds, while I assembled the larger ones. Visitors were encouraged to add their own messages to the smaller birds.The results were very impressive!
Some time ago I was approached by a film company who wanted to use my “elephant” design in a film called “Across the river“. The synopsis: Emma is a successful lawyer with a loving husband, two children and a beautiful home. Ryan is trying to build an elephant out of sand on the beach. He was her first love, it ended badly many years ago, and now a chance meeting reunites them.
The film was released in 2016 and I was recently sent some images of my contribution, having only just remembered 😉 Here they are. The model was modified somewhat, but played an important part in the imagery of the film. I’m now going to find it on DVD 😉
I’ve been commissioned by Museums Sheffield to help prepare a centre-piece for a forthcoming event, which will involve several thousand small doves and a fair number of larger scale examples. Here are some in progress. The paper has been cut from rolls of photo printing paper, relatively thick, making folding slow and moderately painful 😉
Today, I have mostly been assisting Sophie to fold toilet rolls for a video shoot on behalf of a big manufacturer. My hands were deemed to rough and industrial for the purpose, so she was “volunteered”! She had never folded before, so faced a steep learning curve, since toilet paper is not easy to work with. She did superbly 😉
Thanks to the Brills for their company. The post title is a tribute to my beloved Groundhogs!
