**June 5th, 2004, 12:51 am**Joseph Wu has a gallery filled with the Origami Luminaries

( http://www.origami.as ) 10 or so of which are female. One of my goals is to be added to this gallery. When designing origami, there are several routes taken, usually it is one of two, being either doodling (designing with no goal) or aimed (where you aim for a design by finding a base or making one ideal for the model). It is sometimes helpful, but more complicated, to draw a crease pattern based on the points and length needed by the design.

Incase it helps, here is my explanation of a closed sink:

A closed sink is like an open sink, but the layers are rearranged. Try open sinking the waterbomb base, look inside. All sides will be arranged the same. In a closed sink, the inner triangle will not be trapped inbetween the two flaps, it will be on either side of them. Step by step its, fold a water bomb base. Fold closed point to the bottom. Unfold. Fold paper in half. Fold the two diagonal creases (the two points at the closed top) to the middle line, bottom. Fold the top point down. Bring one layer to the front (flip over the first layer from the back). Hopefully you now have a closed sunk waterbomb base.

to wolf: Really? Since I'm going to a convention for the first time in 20 days, I'll have to be the opposite and encourage them, its not in my personality to sneer I would like to see some more prominent women origamists. The only origamist autograph I have is Rachel Katz's and I find here to be very important by teaching origami to children and helping the Shumakovs in immigration, but she is not yet on the luminaries page, probably because Joseph Wu has not had a chance to photograph her.
