Ornamental Omega Star

Season: 
Winter/Spring
Date and Time: 
Sunday, March 31, 2019, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm EDT
Level: 
Intermediate
Presenter: 
Mike Naughton

Mike Naughton will teach his Ornamental Omega Star, which is a fancier version of the well-known Sullivan/Shen Omega Star. Mike discovered it when he was exploring the connection between the Omega Star and Robert Neale's Octahedral Ornament. These explorations yielded a series of models that Mike calls the Continuum, which will be briefly discussed during the session. The Ornamental Omega Star has twelve points, and it also seems to contain an embedded skeletal octahedron.

Familiarity with the Omega Star will be helpful but is not required.

Materials: The model is made from six squares of paper (6" Kami works well), and two sheets each of three different colors are recommended. A seventh sheet is also needed to make a template.
