Status at CP

Origami and its many variants have been popular at the Swap Meat, partially thanks to Jeff Rutzky's early entry, and we've also had a few really interesting pieces from schoolteachers, so Christine is a Swap Meat kinda girl, a Chicago Public Schools teacher who's into origami. I'm not sure where this lacey rosette (for lack of better words to describe it) fits in the classification of the paperfolding arts (Cue an email from Mr. Rutzky) but it's intricate, beautiful, surely time-consuming, and it looks amazing with light shining through it, proving again that origami is so much more than little animals folded out of paper.

Back to the Shop.
