Parker Papercraft tessellations


Benjamin Parker will blow your mind with his origami tessellations. Pictured above is his Light Blue Tessellation, folded from one hexagonal sheet of dyed Zanders Elefantenhaut paper and sewn to a piece of mat board. Based in Connecticut, Benjamin has been making origami since he was 6 years old, and it shows. Check out the rest of his offerings in his Makers Market shop online and for more eye candy, check out his Flickr photostream. The detail on these pieces is astounding.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
