Prefolds

 Circles II

Circles II

In an attempt to speed my process, I have started three folds at once.  The first few steps are all about precision.  The measurements, the prefolding, and the cutting must all be as precise as possible to reduce tension in the final piece.  

Circles II will be a combination of my previous circle design with a 3D hexagon within the center circle.  This design is a study for my next piece.

Waves I is the extension of my wave study.  The meeting of the corners still worries me and the overall tension could be problematic but I believe that this design--my densest structure yet-- should work.

Waves II is a modified chevron pattern.   This piece depends on the paper withstanding being bent into a tensioned form that will not be at rest when the fold is completed.  I might give this large study a 50% chance for survival.
