Modular origami: a vase, as one of the embodiments
If you like the art of origami, but become boring too simple and too complex models, or you do not do it because you like practical decor elements and crafts, we hasten to please you. There is one very interesting subtype of folding paper models. It is simple enough so that even small children can do it, it is interesting for those who love to create, giving free rein to their imagination, and is useful for those who appreciate practical things. And his name is modular origami. A vase made in this way perfectly complements the interior and serves as an excellent vessel for stationery or artificial flowers.
Technology modular origami
When using this technique it is more appropriate to speak not about folding, but about assembly. This is justified by the fact that, although each individual module is made according to all the canons of Japanese art (through numerous additions without the use of glue and scissors), not a single bend is made when creating a particular model.There is only a connection in advance of prepared small parts according to certain schemes. A vase of origami modules will be performed on almost the same system as the tiger, the swan, and the bear. Triangular blanks are connected by threading the sharp corners in the pocket-valves. In order to master the modular origami (a vase or a swan is planned to be created - it does not matter), only one thing is necessary: knowledge of the technology of creating basic elements and the principles of their combination.
How to make a module?
In order to get started, we need a piece of paper, the proportions of the sides corresponding to A4. Most often taken 1/16 of this sheet. A piece of paper is folded in half, first along the long side, then along the short side. After that, the last action is canceled (reversed). Next, you need to bend both ends along the midline. Now turn over the workpiece. Fold the corners as shown in the photo instructions. Raise the sticking tails up. In order to complete the module, the last action is left. We fold our stock in half. Having made three such modules, you will be able to master the basic principle of their connection. We take two parts and push the acute angle of each into the valves of the third.Conducting various manipulations with such a simple, at first glance, action, you can make many interesting models based on modular origami: a vase, a horse, a dragon, and much more. Options are limited only by the imagination of the creator.
And now add colors
Thus, it can be noted that this is a fairly simple technology. Origami from triangular modules (vase in particular) will look even more interesting if you make an odd craft not monophonic, but colored. After all, the complexity of the work it will not add, but the product will look much more impressive. Finally, we will demonstrate one of the works in the "modular origami" technique - a vase made in different colors. And let this model inspire you to interesting solutions.
