Modern Kusudama Origami
Discover kusudama, the paper sphere, formed by modular origami construction techniques. The figures created through modular origami are highly symmetric, because they are made from multiple equivalent units or modules. The method of modular origami offers a great flexibility in shapes you can achieve, while keeping the single unit relatively simple/ Modular origami is a great hobby for those who adore origami and construction sets. This guide presents step-by-step instructions for over 30 elaborate modular origami figures that range difficulty from easy stars to intricate kusudamas.
"This book is titled "Modern Kusudama Origami," and it is very modern in a very nice way; unlike many traditional kusudamas which required sewing or gluing, these designs lock together through clever combinations of tabs and slots, in keeping with the modern genre of modular origami to which they belong. The designs make artful use of color and efficient use of paper, giving a wide variety of beautiful forms, and providing an intellectual springboard for the reader to further develop his or her own designs." - Robert Lang
About the Author
Ekaterina Lukasheva is a contemporary origami artist from Russia. She was first acquainted with origami as a young student, quickly adopting it as her hobby. Her interest continued to increase as she began her studies at Lomonosov Moscow State University as a student of mathematics and cybernetics. It was then that she began inventing her own unique, modular origami models. After a successful launch of her website, http://www.kusudama.me, she unwittingly developed a fan base from around the world. Bolstered by worldwide interest and support for her origami explorations and inspired by origami artists such as Tomoko Fuse and Robert Lang, Ekaterina has gathered some of her favorite models to share in her first book on modular origami: Kusudama Origami.
