Star Dish with Legs and Waterlily Kusudama

This has been a very busy week. I am in the process of putting the finishing touches to several new designs.

I spent a half hour away from the problems associated with these and fiddled with a hexagon.

The result was a star

morphed into a dish that stands on legs and snaps back into the star when you are finished with it

which morphed into a water lily

which morphed into an eight piece kusudama.

The kusudama is held together quite firmly by tabs cut from the scrap material left over after converting an American Letter sheet into a hexagon. No glue.

At a later date I intend to fill the square holes with leaves.

Crease patterns and instructions will come later.

Coming up is a placemat/table runner/wall hanging pseudo-tessellation which is made from square-based quilt-like modules and rectangular tabs. There is also another vase in production.
