This star is made from plastic bottles using a design by Javier Caboblanco. It took just 2 to get the required 8 squares. The bottles I have aren’t straight at all, they have ridges and lumps all the way up, so the squares couldn’t be ‘square’. Nevertheless it still formed a star – with imperfections unique to origomi.
I tried using aluminium, too. This has the ability to be bent and hold different shapes.
This will need some more patience to get better results. I have some ideas for better folding that I need to try.
