We’re back again with another edition of This Week in Origami and this week we’re featuring some new artists we haven’t seen before plus some of these are folded with very different, non-paper materials.  Let’s get started.

First up is this really cool puffer fish folded by Matthieu Georger.

Next up is this mini kusudama by Ekaterina Lukasheva.  It’s quite simple but looks great, especially with that choice of paper and colour.

Fumiaki Kawahata’s Yoda model is one of the coolest Star Wars origami models ever and this week Francisco José González Alcázar tweaked it a bit to make it so the Jedi Master is sitting down instead of standing up and it it looks fantastic.
