Challenge yourself with these creative new innovations in the ancient art of origami paper folding! Origami Animal Sculpture offers a refreshing take on the endlessly fascinating field of zoomorphic origami paper folding.
In Origami Animal Sculpture, origami artist John Szinger shares his unique vision of the wild with detailed how-to instructions for 22 intermediate-to-advanced models of unusual animals and related objects. These expressive lifelike designs incorporate aspects of sculpture, mathematics and 3D design. Szinger offers models in a number of intriguing subject categories, such as:
- Adirondack animals and objects
- Arctic marine mammals
Origami folders will find that the evocative legs, tentacles, claws and antlers deftly exhibit the subjects' quintessential postures and attitudes. Szinger's attention to detail is the hallmark of his work. He's been folding paper for most of his life, starting with paper airplanes at a young age. He devoured origami books at his local library and soon began experimenting with his own designs. Ten years ago, Szinger came back to origami after a long hiatus and began attending conventions, where he met other dedicated folders and was inspired to create his own original models. From these encounters, he began folding origami pieces for personal enjoyment, and to share with other origami makers.
In Origami Animal Sculpture, folders will find beautiful photos, clear instructions and accompanying instructional DVD that make the creatures in this new collection a joy to fold and display.
