Ripe apple by Shuzo Fujimoto

Sunday, 09 July 2017 00:00


This realistic apple figurine was invented by Japanese origami master Shuzo Fujimoto as early as the beginning of the 1980s. He mainly worked in the tessellations technique, so this three-dimensional figure is done in a similar technique.

The round shape of the apple is formed during the pre-folding phase. To do this, you will need to run a series of folds to get the pattern of series of equilateral triangles onto a sheet. The line-making process is rather tedious, but if everything is folded up correctly and without errors, then the following steps will be easier.

It is better to choose paper with sides of different colors for this figurine, then the twig will contrast with the apple. As for the paper size, it is possible to fold the figure from a sheet of 15x15 cm, but then the apple will be about 4 cm in diameter. If you want it to look even more realistic, then it would be wiser to take a sheet of at least 30x30 cm.

We will need:
A square sheet of paper about 30x30 cm in size.
25 minutes of free time.
Happy folding!
