Leaves and stems

Postby Yongsoo » August 29th, 2005, 12:56 am

hello all, new to the forum ^^

I was wondering if anybody had some favorite rose bases, stems, and leaves and the diagrams for how to do them...

I can fold the K-rose just fine, but have not found much in terms of base etc.
I have seen Joseph Wu's rose base... and I was wondering what else was out there.

I would love to find this base and leaf set:

of course... I would love to be able to fold Phu Tran's rose >.>;;;

but until then..

just the base,stem and leaves would be just fine =P

Hi,

in fact I am currently wondering on the very same question. I managed to find some bases for the rose, but I am still looking for more. I'm not that interested into stems and leaves right now, although these could be very useful, too, but I rather need something more flat that allow me to expose only the rose itself. Because once stemmed, it needs a vase or somerhing like that to be exposed.

Particularly, I am looking for a model of the base used on a picture in Rick Beech's book "Origami: The Complete Practical Guide to the Ancient Art of Paperfolding" - in the section for Origami Gallery, it shows the new Kawasaki rose with a very nice and useful base that could allow it to lie on a shelf just like that.

Does anyone know a printed book or an online diagram to fold this base?

===========================================
What I know in terms of bases, leaves and stems, other than this:
===========================================

http://danoftoasters.org/?sample=no&page=3&catnum=3
(calyx and a stem - instructions)

http://www.geocities.com/foldroses/
(another calyx and a stem - instructions)

http://www.ganymeta.org/~darren/images/ ... e_stem.png
(another stem&leaves by Darren Abbey)

http://www.ganymeta.org/~darren/images/ ... e_stem.png
(this is another of Kawasaki roses, coming with a stem)

http://www.progonos.com/furuti/Origami/ ... 20902a.pdf
(i think this is called the tubular rose and also has an attached base, pretty nice)


===========================================
These I don't know instructions for. Maybe someone could help?

(very nice base but I'm not exactly sure how to fold it, only some ideas)

(this also looks fine, maybe the leaves are assembled on a wire, though)

(I think this is described in Origami, Roses and Math by Kawasaki, but I'm not really sure)


thats from me :)

Hi, I'm new here. I was wondering if anyone has good tips on attaching a wire stem to the Kawasaki rose securely. Mine keep falling off their stems! The origami calyx and stem are beautiful but sometimes I'm just lazy. :) Thanks in advance

Anybody tried base for Kawasaki rose designed by Joseph Wu? I am stuck at step 6. If anybody tried that and can post some pictures I would be very grateful.

Leaves and stems

Postby dubbleD » May 24th, 2007, 7:25 am

hi i'm new here. uh well i made a leaf and stem for the kawasaki rose from the book Origami for the Connoisseur. i didnt really want to go on the internet to look up for any base so i designed my own. its not that good. its just a stalk with one leaf at the top and you stick a little point into the hole of the bottom of the rose. (you dont want to know how old i was when i designed it and how old i am now)

There's a diagram for a very simple base that holds the kawasaki rose and its stem on origami.com. Here's the link:
http://dev.origami.com/images_pdf/s-vase.pdf

I know a pretty good leaf model that's an easy fold. I might make a photo tutorial on how to make it....

Oh and on Dan of Toasters' site he has a photo tutorial on how to make the Calyx and the Stem for his version of the Kawasaki Rose.

If you combine all of those models together, you'll have a nice kawasaki rose complete with a stem sitting atop a suitable base. Hope it helps! [-o<

I noticed no one had posted the stand for the kawasaki rose on here so i thought i would. I think it's a cute little bit even thought not very real looking. It is very simple though and displays the rose nicely. Enjoy everyone!

Hi, Ive tried many stems for this rose, but i think the one that i like the most are the stems and leafs of the book Le panier fleuri, of Lionel Albertino, legally downloadable from this site
http://design.origami.free.fr/shop.htm
If folded with tissue, its also a perfect stem for lang rose.
