About this product
- DescriptionHere is a book that introduces an invative and practical craft art that utilises Origami techniques - specifically the hira-ori style - to create folded cloth patterns based on classic geometric designs. These patterns have been influenced by historic architecture and the traditional decorative motifs of many cultures, and have a layered complexity resulting from interaction with light. They change even further in appearance when back-lit (for example, when used as lampshades, or as screens). The approach is an easy-to-follow, step-by-step approach that is highly illustrated with sequential patterns and photos - more than 250 in total: all in colour. This is a book that will have a wide appeal to anyone who enjoys working with textiles and fabric, as well as origami: a total of 15 different projects are explained, including pillow designs, lampshades, neckties, bedspreads, tablecloths and divider screens. The book begins with an overview of Shadowfolding as a craft, and includes information on geometric tessellation, grids, pleats, twists, materials and folding techniques, then follows detailed instruction on how to form Shadowfolds and a gallery of different styles. The second half of the book contains the 15 projects, with useful appendices, including where the materials can be sourced in the world.
- Author BiographyJeffrey Rutzky has always had a passion for arts and crafts, and has integrated them with his desktop publishing skills to create unique works of art. He is also the author and designer of several papercraft books, including Kirigami Kit, TearPlanes, Jewelgami, and Bugagmi. Rutzky works as an artist and graphic designer in New York City. Chris K. Palmer is a professional artist who has been designing and folding origami since childhood. In Granada, Spain, he was inspired by the mosaic tilings of the Alhambra. Persistent effort and study of the Japanese hira-ori technique led Palmer to make the leap from paper folding to Shadowfolds. Palmer has taught art and architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Colorado at Boulder. He now resides in California.
