Paper Mosaics
Make your own

Welcome to Paper Mosaics! Origami tessellations are a genre of origami that started in the late 1960s with models such as Momatani's stretch wall and later works by Shuzo Fujimoto in his book "Seizo soru origami asobi no shotai" (Creative invitation to paper play). Origami tessellations take a simple crease pattern unit and repeat this across the paper. Chris Palmer has developed the art to new heights. The mathematics of the topic have been developed by a number of people including Toshikazu Kawasaki, Helena Verrill, Tom Hull and Robert Lang. Over the past seven years I have written a computer program, called Tess, to aid the design of these models. Some of my work is shown in the gallery. You can also find crease patterns for some of these models to make your own, or buy the Paper Mosaics e-book for more models.
