Sliceform teapots and other things, oh my

I think sliceforms have a lot of potential for furniture and are just really cool. 

Richard Sweeney has amazing work with paper.  Encountering his sliceforms awhile back I was intrigued and made a few myself.  The blog has several pictures that’ll make you envious.

John Sharp has a book and posters available.

You can get his stuff here.

    Thanks. Your site has a lot of pictures. Busy Bee. I am going to refer a lady in Russia who also works in origamic architecture as well as sliceforms to your site.

    I got so excited by the subject that I wrote some software to create the sliceforms myself with the computer.

    It’s a plugin for the free Google SketchUp software, you can find it at Public Art International’s website: http://www.public-art-international.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/200

    I’ve only dabbled in sliceforms a little bit. Did try out asteronimo’s plugin. It seems to work well.
