OCoP Members - Highlights

This page has been created to highlight some of our members and their Origami involvement both in and outside of the club.

OCoP member Scott Stern visited the Falk School, University of Pittsburgh, on December 8, 2014.  He spoke at three assemblies for all the students (K-8) attending Falk.  Scott described his recent (2) books which the school library had on display, and also taught models to the student audience.

Young members Evan Deddo (right) and Ben Tarr (Left) in early 2013, both of whom have models in OrigamiUSA's 2011 Origami By Children exhibit.  From OrigamiUSA's web site: "For more than three decades, OrigamiUSA has sponsored Origami by Children, an annual exhibition of outstanding origami by children from around the world.". 

Origami models on loan from the Origami Club of Pittsburgh (Squirrel Hill Branch, Carnegie Library)  now fill the first floor GAP case at Laurel Arts. This exhibit is courtesy of Sue Neff and Emmeline Silk, active teachers for the Osher Foundation for Life-Long Learning.  June, 2012.

Pictures from Friday March 4, 2011's Language Bowl, sponsored by the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania.  The competition was held at the University of Pittsburgh and nine High School teams participated.  OCoP members Ronna Blumenfeld and Martha Nakajima, and CMU student Peter Marchetti demonstrated Origami at the event.  Photos courtesy of JASP.

Evan Deddo entered a model for an octopus in the June 2010 Competition of Origami by Children exhibit.

Sue Neff vacationed in France during June 2010, and she was able to attend a meeting of the Mouvement Francais des Plieurs de Papier (MFPP).  The dog model pictured is one designed and folded by Eric Joisel.  Sue had hoped to meet M. Joisel but he was unwell at the time.  The Origami world will miss such a wonderful folder and artist. 

Sue Neff visited the Sculpture Park in Loveland Colorado, during September 2009.  One of the sculptures in the park is a pair of bronze ponies made to look as if they were Origami models.

Robert Sterbal sent in a picture of a couple hundred cranes of the thousand folded for his wedding.  He also mentioned that he and his wife folded a thousand cranes in celebration of the birth of their daughter.
