Shape up with this mind-blowing set that--quite honestly--we didn’t even know was possible until our editors discovered the exquisite artwork of Heinz Strobl’s Snapology Project. Inspired by his work, our designers have created Geometric Origami, a new, sophisticated origami kit for advanced origami artists. Create 15 paper projects using the specially designed strips included in the set: Tetrahedron, Hexahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, Icosahedron, Truncated Tetrahedron, Cuboctahedron, Icosidodecahedron, Rhombic Triacontahedron, Snub Dodecahedron, Zonohedron, and Buckyballs. Don’t worry--there’s even a few pronounceable shapes like an Egg and a Geometric Bracelet, plus more surprises. (We would include them here, but we’re still looking up their proper spellings.)
* Gain a whole new perspective on geometry and the world of origami. * Great fun for the entire family--or for your local geometry professor.
Geometric Origami offers the next generation of art and paper crafting for origami enthusiasts.
Faye Goldman has been doing origami for over 50 years. She was attracted to origami by its ability to demonstrate mathematical concepts and be beautiful at the same time. Her love of mathematics and geometric constructions is mirrored in her modular forms.
Heinz Strobl, the creator of Snapology, the technique of folding used in this book, has labeled her "the ambassador of Snapology." She has taught Snapology around the world. Exhibits of her work have been made in Singapore at OSME^5 (Origami in Science, Math and Education), and at the national conventions of Centerfold, PCOC, and OrigamiUSA.
She lives outside of Philadelphia and is the leader of the Greater Philadelphia Paper Pholders, a regional group of folders dedicated to sharing their love of Origami.
