Today I thought I’d share a hobby of mine that I find to be very relaxing seeing as how the last couple of days have been somewhat trying for me. I started making kusudama or origami balls a few years ago and even though they take me about seven hours to make, I’m always so satisfied by the result of holding a colourful ball in my hands! Kusudama are composed of identical individual units, usually flowers, that are put together to form one spherical unit. I just love the fusion of math and art and I feel more relaxed just looking at one of these guys!
This one is about the size of my head. My cats are scared of this one!
This one fits in the palm of my hand!
Instead of flowers, I was thinking of making these as centerpieces for my wedding reception. What do you guys think?
