This is high intermediate model that utilizes grafts on a simple base. Folders who attempt the model should be prepared to divide a sheet into fifths, estimate thirds, and make several "subjective" folds without reference points during the final shaping phase. The sample is made from 35x35 cm Japanese foil and is approximately 10 cm tall.

Due to some problems during the zoom presentation, the teacher has provided a link to a google slide presentation with photo diagrams and a YouTube tutorial. These may provide better folding instructions than the zoom recording: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vRb1S9YABO8t3PDtXJBxDeB7...


The model requires a strong, thin paper. Papers such as Kami or Tant may tear too easily or get too thick. Foils (American/Japanese) should work fine if you are careful. Papers such as Kraft, tracing, or thin tissues may be too weak to stand if a strengthening substance is not used.
