Chris Palmer appreciation thread

Postby Brimstone » February 13th, 2009, 3:20 am

I frequently visit music forums and threads like this in which a specific artist is praised, are very common so I thought of starting this one about one of my all time favorite origami creators, Chris Palmer, so here are some of his models that I've folded. Feel free to post your Chris Palmer renditions.

I am certainly am a big fan of Palmer, and am very appreciative of the contributions he's made to the tessellation field. Thanks for starting this thread!

Flower Tower, folded by me from one uncut sheet of paper.

Yeah...I sort of found it by accident, I borrowed the magazine from the BOS library at the 40th convention to fold the Flying Eupatorus gracilicornis by Robert Lang. That didn't turn out too well but i managed to fold the king polypouch.
It's great to see what other Chris Palmer designs people have folded, thanks for starting this topic.

Those are some interesting designs.
I haven't heard of him before, but I might have to look him up now.
I take it most of his stuff is star/spiral shaped?

He hasn't published any books, just some Cd's with video instructions and geometric origami would never be as popular as figurative origami, so many people will never hear of him.

Most of his designs are complex geometric stuff like boxes with amazing decorations and flowers with intricate twists. He's also done some amazing tessellation work even with cloth instead of paper.

I believe that Chris has a flower tower box? or something like it. Does anyone know what I'm remembering ? Are there any diagrams?

Thanks,

As far as I remember the Flower Tower Box is by John Mckeever (thiomor)

There are no diagrams for it. It is just a flower tower with spare paper on the sides so that a masu box can be made out of it.

Long time ago I folded Chris Palmer's decagonal Flower Tower. This is very ingenious model. You cannot destroy it, even if you sit on it. ;)

I haven't folded much recently, but when I had some time I folded a couple of Chris' 8 petal flower towers. Here they are collapsed (l) and erected (r).
