Origami Magic Ball Wonders: From Dragon’s Egg to Hot Air Balloon

ORILAND: What Origami Can Be!

Origami Magic Ball Wonders by Yuri and Katrin Shumakov

As we are writing a book right now titled ‘Origami Magic Ball Wonders: From Dragon’s Egg to Hot Air Balloon’ we wanted to share some insights into its main subject.

Here is the story of one of our very popular designs – Magic Ball, originally called Dragon’s Egg, known also as Magic Sphere.

Magic Ball / Dragon's Egg / Magic Sphere

Magic Ball / Dragon’s Egg / Magic Sphere by Yuri Shumakov (1996)

Designed by Yuri Shumakov in far 1996, this design was explored in many directions and developed into various versions from one-piece to modular spheres.

Magic Ball Designs in Gallery

Various Magic Ball Designs by Yuri Shumakov (1996 – 2001)

The design uses the folding method that Yuri developed back in 90s, exploring origami tessellations, origami surfaces as we called them that time. And one of these surfaces was ‘Dragon’s Skin’ (1996), which was transformed into a ‘Dragon’s Egg’ design and later labelled with names ‘Magic Sphere’ and ‘Magic Ball’.

Origami Surfaces

Origami Surfaces by Yuri Shumakov (1996)

The Dragon’s Skin and Dragon’s Egg / Magic Ball designs were first exhibited in 1997 on our solo exhibition ‘Origami – Miracles from paper’ (November, 1997 – January, 1998).

ORILAND exhibition, Public Library, Rostov-on-Don, Russia, 1997

The Shumakovs’ exhibition ‘Origami – Miracles from paper’ (November, 1997 – January, 1998)

This Magic Ball / Dragon’s Skin design and its inversions were integrated into many of our designs and used largely in our Oriland and its architecture, for instance, the castle of Foldingburg, Magic Air Balloon, Cactus, Fir-Tree etc.

Castle of Foldingburg by Yuri Shumakov (1998)

Castle of Foldingburg by Yuri Shumakov (1998)

The extensive exposure on the Internet came to this Magic Ball / Dragon’s Egg design through our award-winning web-site ‘Travel to Oriland’, we created for The International ThinkQuest Competition in 1999.

Our Internet-project 'Travel to Oriland' with an interactive embodiment of our exhibition of our origami works won the Silver Award in Art and Literature category.

Our Internet-project ‘Travel to Oriland’ with an interactive embodiment of the exhibition of our origami works won the Silver Award in Art and Literature category in the ThinkQuest Competition 1999 (Los Angeles, CA, USA)

Travel to Oriland site draw a huge attention of origami community across the Internet and attracted many young people to the origami art itself. For example, OrigamiUSA, the biggest origami society in the world, issued an admirable article about this virtual magic trip to Oriland in The Paper, Issue #66, December 1999. The Dragon’s Egg / Magic Ball and related designs were prominently displayed throughout this vast website, including shown above Foldingburg Castle and Magic Air Balloon that flew across the screen using the hi-tech of that time, impressing visitors.

The Dragon’s Egg was a jewel of La Magic Castle and displayed in the Hall of Magic Items with the info about the creator and year of creation.

Aside from all the Internet exposure, the Magic Ball and its related designs were exhibited since 1997 up to the present time on various origami exhibitions all over the world.

The Shumakovs' Oriland exhibition, Charlotte, NC, USA, 2002

The Shumakovs' TOY-RONTO KINGDOM, Canadian National Exhibition, 2013

The Shumakovs’ TOY-RONTO KINGDOM, Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto, ON, Cananda, 2013

We have been asked by several origami tutors for permission to make on-line video tutorials of this design. Here, for example, is the link to Jo Nakashima’s tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgXwSdJNks8

However, we have some designer’s secrets for Dragon’s Egg / Magic Ball and the related designs that will be revealed in the upcoming book ‘Origami Magic Ball Wonders:  From Dragon’s Egg to Hot Air Balloon’ !

The book will contain detailed step-by-step diagrams for our Dragon’s Egg / Magic Ball and a variety of designs connected with it.

Stay tuned for our book that comes approx March* 2015 to find out!

*Edit! It will be released in the end of May or so, because the book will include more magic ball designs than we originally planned!

Happy folding! :-)
Go Green with Oriland!

Fold Origami Poppy for Remembrance Day!

Remembrance Day Origami Poppy

Lest We Forget!
…in memory of those who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.

The red remembrance poppy is an emblem of Remembrance Day or Veteran’s Day that is observed in many countries on November 11.

This origami poppy design is folded from one red square backed by black paper. It is quite an old design of ours from the late 90s, we have put it aside for long time because we tend to more 3D designs, but on Remembrance Day we remembered of it and think it fits just perfect into the theme.

As per numerous requests we have diagrammed this design and now are pleased to share it with all the origami enthusiasts in our Oriland Origami Studio on-line.
Fold Origami Poppy for Remembrance Day!

Oriland Balloon RideDo you know that November 11 is not only Remembrance Day / Veteran’s Day, it is also Origami Day in Japan! And it is not just a coincidence, as Origami Day stands for peace with an origami major symbol, the paper crane.

The Japanese Origami Day is also finalizing World Origami Days held each year from October 24 to November 11, when the international community celebrates the beautiful art of origami. Be part of it too!

Happy folding!
