Wonderful Orchid Origami..

***Before we begin I certainly would like to thank hykall hyrie for being my 5th blog followers. 
You're very much welcome..Thank you.***

 ..and now for a new post today..


         Being involved in art myself, I cant help but noticed that orchid has become one of the 'artist subjects'. there are textile motifs, prints, drawings, paintings, jeweleries and many more. Why? maybe its because of the flower itself..the way their appeal to the mass..Doesn't matter whether you like orchids or not..nobody would say that they are ugly..even the unusual ones, its more of a cross between weird and unique..except for the smell (bulbophyllum especially, but not all) this one yes..some really does have a nasty smell..
       
        Origami is one of the old crafts, meaning the art of Japanese paper folding. Im'sure everybody knows origami. which started in the 17th century AD and  at the latest and was popularized outside Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami. You can create so many shapes and forms imaginable, the most popular are animals, flowers, everyday objects and even human forms and facial expressions! 
       
       Flowers among the most popular. Creativity is endless..creating flowers with origami brings a new dimension in visuals by creating an art form based on the real ones..Orchid was no exception..Some of the famous Origami artists have created many forms of orchid flowers complete with the whole plants itself..! You get to see the other view of orchid plants and fowers like you've never seen before..

       Sebagai seorang yang terlibat di  dalam bidang seni, saya dapat perhatikan orkid juga adalah salah satu motif yang dijadikan inspirasi untuk berkarya. Reka corak kain, lukisan, catan, barang kemas dan sebagainya.. Kenapa orkid? mungkin daya tarikannya kepada khalayak ramai. Tak kiralah sama ada orang tu minat atau tidak orkid tetapi tak ada seorang pun yang akan kata bunga orkid ni tak cantik atau hodoh..Orkid yang luar biasa pun selalunya lebih kepada kelihatan ganjil dan unik..kecualilah baunya..(terutamanya sesetengah spesis bulbophyllum) jenis ini baunya memang..

       Origami adalah salah seni melipat kertas orang-orang Jepun. ia satu bentuk kraftangan tradisi yang telah lama bertapak di negara matahari terbit itu sejak kurun ke-17 lagi. Ia mula popular di luar Jepun pada pertengahan tahun 1900 dan sehingga kini ia telah mengalami evolusi menjadi salah satu bentuk kesenian moden. Melalui origami kita boleh mereka berbagai bentuk arca kertas. Kreativiti tidak terbatas..kita boleh menghasilkan berbagai gubahan melalui imaginasi dan kreativiti seperti haiwan, bunga, objek sehari-hari hinggalah bentuk manusia bahkan ekspresi muka..

       Bunga adalah 'subjek' origami yang popular. Menghasilkan bunga dengan teknik origami sememangnya sudah lama dilakukan. Bentuk-bentuk bunga origami ini memberikan satu dimensi visual yang baru dalam aspek reka cipta berilhamkan bunga yang sebenar, sebab origami ini berasaskan kombinasi lipatan dalam bentuk-bentuk geometri. Orkid juga menjadi 'subjek' origami..Beberapa tokoh terkenal dalam seni melipat kertas ini telah menghasilkan bentuk-bentuk bunga orkid yang sangat menarik..hingga lengkap dengan daun dan batang sekali..Kita boleh lihat bunga orkid origami dari satu sudut pandangan lain yang unik dan tersendiri..

       Jom kita tengok gambar-gambar di bawah ini..Lets take a look at the picures below..

  1. The video is for a completely different design from the plans. And the plans dont show how to get from step 1 to step two. So, they are fucking useless. I hate it when bloggers post shit without testing it first. Fucking dumbass
