A stem on top can be placed on the bottom or if it is to the right, it can be placed on the left of the other one with which it is paired. Not least, the book contained a chapter which amounted to an introduction to Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arrangement.

One thing that occurred to me was the important characteristic of: Preliminary Folding of the Stems These adjustments bring the different width paper to a common starting position for folding, and to fix orihami size of the holes in the stems.

There is usually a gap between the long and middle stems which need to be filled.

The most outstanding origmi is its attempt to depict plants and flowers as growing in its natural state. Cathy Serventi added it Nov 06, For the square base the outside is trimmed to an octagon, while for the hexagon vase a hexagon shape minorh used.

One reason for going to six petals rather than to stick to eight is that some flowers, notably the lily, the iris and the- daffodils, come with six petals. When the long stem is horizontal the posi- tions are labeled Cl, C2, C3.

Another base for a traditional flower, the water lily, is the triple blintz “” -d which involves folding in the corners to oriami ranter three times and produces twelve points.


Next a leaf is inserted into the first node. The petals are generally shorter than for the bird and frog bases, but still quite adequate for many flowers. The cut fpowers are sufficient for small to medium size arrangements with three to seven flowers. After the stems are put together in three sizes and a posi- tion has been selected, the stems can be curved into the shape indicated by the diagram.

The petals are shorter and wider so that in place of the full sinking of the center square it is only have sunk. This provides the necessary hold into which a stem is later inserted. The extra long flaps will be straightened out when they are unblintzed. Tuck the snort flaps under. Another is to reverse the color when starting to fold so that the center ridges are white. In the diagram the vertical lines and the triangle con- necting them indicate the rough location of the sakodz of the stem as it is projected down to the level of the bottom of the vase.

Hence it is not sakodaa to deal with the dead leaves, the inconvenient branch, stems that refuse to bend or remain in position, etc. The single long stem is begun like the middle stem, but is ended as one would an end stem-without a hole at one end, unless one chooses to put more than one flower at the end.

A number of them, such as a cherry blossom, a sixteen-petaled chrysanthemum, a daffodil and narcissus, an accordion-pleated leaf, and a swirl rose, will challenge oriagmi longtime folders.

In my Origami Diary for June 11, I have a note that I was working on a six petal flower, which was accomplished by hiding two of the points. It could not be expected to hold up igainst excessive moisture, for example, or -gainst abuse during transportation and handling, even before the Black Ship Festival had started I began to experiment with foil paper, and decided: The Daffodil and Narcissus The center cup of the daffodil is created by turning the six petal frog base upside down and the petals are folded in the usual manner.


The advantage of the flat pic- ture is that it is a relatively simple matter to fold a stem and leaves from narrow strips of paper and connect them to each other and to flowers by past- ing them to a sheet of paper or cardboard.

This was an annual event in which I participated by teaching a couple of classes on origami— mostly to beginners.

In spite of these variations Japanese flower arrangement has some distinctive features. There are complications, such as the need to sink the center point, the unblintzing operation to transform the folded in corners into petals resem- bling the others already folded. The divi- sion Into five or seven panels or the forming of a pentagon or hexagon can be done on the ruler or template.

The packet might consist of four, six or eight inch sheets each of the following colors: Even so, I felt that doubling the width of the paper ‘ould provide more adequate strength. The preferred color of the rail paper is silver with a small mosaic pattern of 7— bossing. The Narcissus with white center.
