In my Chemistry course, we studied modules on molecular arrangement and crystallography, where we had to visualize the packing of molecules in crystals and solids. It was funny watching some of my friends stare incredulously at the lecturers who tried to teach us how the forms translate into one another by rotation and stretching. Brains are wired differently and I imagine it is an impossibly difficult subject for those of us who simply. can’t. see. a. thing!
Trust the Japanese to invent origami. The craft of folding something as flat as paper into 3D animals and toys takes a great amount of imagination and visualization – the Japanese would definitely bag all the distinctions at crystallography :p
Here are two sets of origami rubber stamps which I made, which were stamped into beautiful origami prints.
The origami elephants look kinda good together in my favourite colour combination of grey and pink (Tsuineko’s Versacraft Old Rose and Versacraft Cool Grey).
I designed these two origami crane and plane rubber stamps as they give a whimsical feel when printed together. Both have wings and both can fly, and yet they are such distinct creatures/objects! Stamped with Tsuineko’s Versacraft Cerulean Blue and Versacraft Yukon.
These rubber stamps are now available for sale on my Etsy shop at www.parademade.etsy.com, or just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not have an Etsy account.
Have a great day everyone! 🙂
