Steel Origami Squirrel


These steel origami pieces are an original concept. I start by making the paper version, then transfer it into CAD. From there, I am able to convert it to a bendable sheet metal design. Once I have the various parts cut, bent, and welded, I use various grinders, sanders, and files to blend all the pieces and bring the origami feel to life. The finish is achieved by hot oil bluing.
