Eventually, we agreed on two of my existing designs: these were to be made with lots of folded units techniques: the units are connected to form a large stable construction. Normally I try to make the results stable enough to hold together by folding alone, but it was soon clear that at the larger sizes required, they would need to be glued together to be made more secure. I hate glue! My hands get covered with the stuff, and it somehow always gets on the outside of the piece. More importantly I find that I cannot rework any errors I’ve made, once the glue has set. But my wife Assia, who is a lot more patient than I, helped me and gave me her views about how we could finish the job.

Try your hand at some origami yourself here: You can even try to build your OWN Centura Pearl ball which is here entitled 30º Fuse ball.
