What is the best origami rose

Post by Origami_Hunt »

Hi all,

Could you give me some help on the following, please?

What is in your opinion the best origami rose? And which one is the best trade-off between beauty and difficulty?

I'd probably go with one of the many Kawasaki Rose variations.
My preferred one is the simple version with the precreasing method by Kevin Hines. I like it because it is fast and easy to fold and very clean.

The most realistic variations of pentagonal twist roses are probably the ones by Naomiki Sato. He's written a book on the subject and there are also a couple of videos out there.

There are many other beautiful roses out there, but I think those are the most important ones.

My personal favorite rose is the "A Miura-Ken Beauty Rose" by Robert Lang, but it's extremely difficult to fold well.

I have a one-sheet rose design on my old Flickr account here.
Come to think of it, mine is only fourfold symmetry, so I might try to come up with a fivefold version.

Have you tried the 1 minute rose? It is fairly simple, nice, and easy to make.
Ethics are annoying, I avoid them on principle.

You are welcome :D Also, while technically not a rose, Lang's orchid blossom looks nice.
