Geometric Origami

Geometric Origami by Thunder Bay (The Book Shop, Ltd.) is a collection of project instructions and folding strips to make stunning and unique Snapology constructions by Faye E. Goldman.

Faye Goldman has been doing origami for over 50 years. She was attracted to origami by its ability to demonstrate mathematical concepts and be beautiful at the same time. Her love of mathematics and geometric constructions is mirrored in her modular forms.

Heinz Strobl, the creator of Snapology, the technique of folding used in this book, has labeled her “the ambassador of Snapology.” She has taught Snapology around the world. Exhibits of her work have been made in Singapore at OSME^5 (Origami in Science, Math and Education), and at the national conventions of Centerfold, PCOC, and OrigamiUSA.

She lives outside of Philadelphia and is the leader of the Greater Philadelphia Paper Pholders, a regional group of folders dedicated to sharing their love of Origami.

I have been doing origami since elementary school. I was drawn to modular origami by its structure and mathematical properties. This is the medium in which I generally work. More recently, I found the Snapology technique by H. Strobl, which allows great creativity with very few rules using only strips of material. I like to use beautiful ribbon which seems to add another dimension to my work. Snapology has allowed me to dig deeply into mathematical shapes. It has provided insights into mathematical concepts and ideas. I recently published ‘Geometric Origami’ which explains the technique. The bottom line is that I make these wonderful works because they look really cool.
