Organic Origami Home : Organic Origami Gallery : Pleat Tessellations Three  

   Pleat tessellations: second-order pleats and interleaved sequences.

Full box-pleats (called second-order pleats here) result in softer curves.
At the same time, they provide more material for free-form sculpting, which is not illustrated here (yet).

Paper: elephant-hide (Wyndstone Marble); copper, brown and red “krinkle”; hemp paper; bookbinding cloth.
