Origami Artist, Mathematics Teacher
Polish Origami Association
Gliwice, Poland
I graduated from Silesia Technical University in Gliwice, Poland in mathematics. I work at a primary school teaching mathematics and origami. I'm also the Vice President of Polish Origami Association.

I'm an origami artist bringing together math and paper art. I design my own models, which I presented on many exhibitions. I organize exhibitions, demonstrations, competitions and origami workshops for students and teachers. In the last 5 years I published 3 origami books and 6 booklets - a series on origami tessellation. Most of my latest works are made from single sheet (square or hexagonal). Without any cuts or glue I fold paper mosaics - tessellations. Some of them are 3D.
Visibility - Hearts Tessellation
54 cm x 35 cm
Paper
2014
My work is comparison real folded tessellation with CP (crease pattern) - interpretation of unfolded paper. CP, which is distributed tessellation image, has been colored according to the principle: brown lines - mountain folds, white lines - valley folds, light cream area - top layer of paper, light brown area - good visibility of paper, darker brown area - hampered visibility of paper, darkest brown area - a hidden layer of paper. This kind of presentation shows how tessellation made from one paper works.
Hearts Tessellation is folded from square sheet of paper divided into 32 and has one axial symmetry.
Visibility - Double Twisted Tessellation
54 cm x 35 cm
Paper
2014
The work consists of two parts. The main work is CP (crease pattern) of Double Twisted Tessellation folded from square sheet of paper divided into 24. CP is compare to real folded paper. This tessellation has rotational symmetry (90 degrees, 180, 270).
Visibility - Rotating Fans Tessellation
54 cm x 35 cm
Paper

The work consists of two parts. The main work is CP (crease pattern) of Rotating Fans Tessellation folded from hexagonal sheet of paper divided into 32. CP is compare to real folded paper. This tessellation has rotational symmetry (60 degrees, 120, 180, 240, 300).
