Yoshizawa’s work appeared first in Japan with the publication of his series of astrological figures in the picture magazine dotted line. “Asahi Graf” in the issue for January, 1952. His work then appeared in the West remarkably soon afterwards, with the exhibition of the work of Yoshizawa at the Stadtlich Museum in Amsterdam in November 1955. It was Yoshizawa who created the idea of CREATIVE paperfolding (Sasaku Origami) and he invented a whole range of new designs which owed nothing to the origami of the past. In particular, he explored the potentialities of the Bird Base and rediscovered the “Sideways Turn” previously used in Japan only in the traditional Crow. With this technique, he folded a whole menagerie of animals and birds. Still, however, Yoshizawa had to create his four-legged animals using two squares of paper. It was not until the development of “Blintzed” Bases in the mid 1950s by other folders and particularly by the American, George Rhoades, that it became possible to fold animals with 4.
