kusudama: curl 1 (i)

Once again a kusudama from Flower Globe, 花まり, by 布施知子/ FUSE Tomoko. This one is named カール1/ Curl 1. It’s not the first “curled” kusudama of the book but receives the name as such. As the one in the previous post this one was done a looong time ago…


As most, every?, kusudamas in the book it’s a double sonobe; actually sonobe isn’t quite the correct expression. After all a sonobe is from a square paper and even though there are obvious similarities in the folding and assembling process there are are different in many ways! Paper size, number of pieces per unit and of course the numerous arrangements :)
I used double faced coloured paper of 8×4 cm/ 3.1×1.6″ and the same size of sketch paper. Or draft paper; I never know which name to call it: the strong yet thin paper slightly transparent and whitish that you sketch on at some part of your school life… The sketch paper doesn’t hold that well the curls but it doesn’t hold it that bad either… If I find a better substitute I’ll definitively use it. This kusudama is also nice before curling: it has a totally different feeling to it.

    Not that I’m impressed a lot, but this is a lot more than I expected for when I found a link on Delicious telling that the info here is quite decent. Thanks.
