Oh! A video on the flower tower would be cool. I know you must be a busy lady. Whatever video you make next... I am sure to watch it!
What did the Origami Artist say to the paper?

Neal Elias Angel from BOS booklet number 10. I would dearly love to see that model folded.
I made an apple pie from instructions in a cookbook. Can I sell my pie? Of course. As long as I don't claim to be the creator of the recipe, I'm fine.Church bake sales are being sued? lol

Just a quick update. I uploaded a new video, this time featuring a very simple, traditional collapsible box (water dish, orisue, ..).

See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAVkfjvdy2U or http://www.happyfolding.com/instruction ... psible_box

Next up: Apple by Shuzo Fujimoto, and a stellated octahedron from a single sheet of paper by John Montroll

As to the flower tower by Chris Palmer, I'll have to give that one another go. But didn't Chris make a video himself, which is for sale on his website?

Happy folding,

-- Sara

I'm sure if you study him folding it enough times in "Between the Folds" you could get a good idea what to do. I will watch it again, to advise whether you should even try doing that.

Ha, for that I'd first have to see "Between the Folds". I might go to the German convention, and check whether it's for sale there.

Also, I've folded the flower tower twice thus far, but don't feel confident enough about it to demonstrate it. [From the top of my head, I don't even know how to fold it. I'd have to have another look at which instructions I followed, I think they were textual - yey!]

Oh, well its the only non-solely for instructions origami movie that I've seen, and on top of that LaFosse and Palmer are the only others I've seen that make videos, but this is a documentary for the most part (it even has Lafosse teaching you how to make his paper :o )

Hi Sara,

First off your site is fantastic and a great vehicle for the advancement of origami. Thank you for all the effort.

anyway, i know your list of models is growing and your free time is shrinking but i was folding Nguyen Hung Cong's Owl today from Tanteidan Convention 15 and thought it'd be a perfect candidate for one of your videos.

- it's not overly complex so it should be teachable in a reasonable amount of time

- the model is 3d most of the way so it would lend itself quite well to being shown in a video

- the result is quite elegant....just looks great for a rather quickish fold

i couldn't find any easy contact info for him but i'm sure Nicolas Terry could assist since they worked so closely on the diagrams for his eagle in License to Fold.

What do you think?

I love your profile picture,off of my top favorite animes :) , so much in fact after a bit of photoshop'ing I'll be able to give my own flare to it. So you have tanteidan too, what do you think of H.T. Quyet's fox? I like it better than any other I've seen so far.

According to what I've heard Chris Palmer does not allow people to teach his models in a "public" way, so the Flower Tower is out of the question, I guess.

I haven't tried contacting him yet, but I agree it's a great model. Indeed, it's one of the models that really made me want to have that book. :)
I'll have a look into contacting him, but probably when I have a bit more time on my hands.

I gave it a quick go and wasn't as enthusiastic as you seem to be. I'm tempted to buy "Origami Essence" by Román Díaz solely for the vixen shown own the cover, though.

Thanks for the info!

And finally, I've just uploaded a new video:

YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LVX6zWDcJk
Happyfolding: http://www.happyfolding.com/instructions-montroll-stellated_octahedron

Next up: Apple by Shuzo Fujimoto
After that: probably more tessellation techniques, Twirl (10 butterfly modules) by Krystyna Burczyk (http://www.happyfolding.com/gallery-burczyk-twirl_10_butterfly_modules), maybe a specially themed Easter model

Hope you enjoy it,

-- Sara
