Merry-Go-Rounds Origami Tessellation


 A fairly simple configuration that I stumbled upon while tinkering. 

I don't know about other people, but most of my tessellations are the result of fiddling. 

In this case, open back hexagons and pyramids. 

Some wings on the other side. 

It's a pretty uncomplicated design. 

Still, it has a nice finished effect. 

The open back hexagons are offset from the triangle grid, but the remaining folds are all natural. 


A lot of tessellations focus on twist folds and various manipulations of the triangle grid. Which is fabulous and makes for all sorts of interesting designs. 

Natural folds feel a little neglected overall. There are wonderful discoveries to be made there as well.

A crease pattern for this tessellation will be added to this post in the near future. 

Update: crease pattern added below.
