flowers : new/old design

ff3bI have a large box of discarded creative efforts and from time to time, I wade through them, seeing if anything actually has promise. I’ve had a twisted flower for about 15 years, but it was just that, twisted but not locked. A flash of inspiration later, it’s elegantly locked. Changing a key angle allows variations from tight to open. No actual method yet, but I’ll teach it at the forthcoming York BOS convention and see what happens!

  1. Hi Nick,
    Like the look of this especially with the tight/open variations. It reminds me a bit of Anna Kastlunger’s:

    with the points left out. I fold that one all the time as it is quick and very satisfying to fold but some people I show it to think it’s a spinning top…
    Yours looks much more like a flower.
    I can’t come to York so hope it all goes well.
    Matthew

    • I hadn’t seen that before, but you’re right. I’ve seen one or two using the “hold the centre of a WBB and evert the rest” method, but the locks sometimes seem to let them down.
