Origami Swan Lake by collarander Origami Swan Lake by collarander
This is my biggest origami project I've ever made from modular units, and the first to combine different bits together to create a whole scene.
Modular origami pieces are slotted together to form a shape without the help of adhesives or glue, and I put a lot of thought and planning to form the outer bowl shape. It took a while to figure out how to join the circular flat base to the rising edge using only the slots, but I managed it in the end. The swan helps to weigh down the modules in the centre, but they still pop up a bit as you can see in the photo.

I made a competition at my workplace for who could guess the number of modules in the entire piece. That was a bad decision, I ended up having to spend about half an hour counting up the bits myself. My count was 1347 modules. I surprised myself! Didn't think it was going to go into the 4 digits.

I'm really happy with how this one turned out; it's definitely a progression of my past models and I really hope to keep developing my abilities to make bigger better projects in the future.
