Personal websites
There are an awful lot of origami websites out there. Some are good, some are bad, and some are fantastic. Here is a selection of some of these websites, in alphabetical order. I've categorised these according to whether they are personal sites, or origami groups and organisations. The star rating at the bottom of each site is voted for by users of fishgoth.com, rather than me, so you can see what others think of these links. As this list might get rather long, you can also click on 'random links' to see five sites chosen entirely at random.

Gilad Aharoni's website

I met Gilad at a BOS convention - thoroughly nice chap. He has a huge collection of his origami models photographed here. There are also a large number of origami books reviewed - one of the biggest book reviews on the web. There is also a rather unflattering photograph of myself somewhere on the site, too...

Chris Alexander's Star Wars Origami

Ashipine's website

This is another Japanese website which Google translate mangles a bit. I'm not really sure who it is by, but there are some rather attractive simple origami models, folded in the typical Japanese style.

Be Silent

This Korean blog highlights some impressively complex models. Unfortunately, I'm not sure who the creator is, and I really wish he would fold these models out of some decent paper. And also photograph them in front of a neutral background, instead of his desk or bookcase.

David Brill's website

If ever you've come to a British Origami Society convention, then you've probably been made to feel welcome by David Brill. You've probably come across the book 'Brilliant Origami', too. On his site, he displays an amazing range of origami models, with a handful of diagrams. There is also a selection of his painting, too.

Giang Dinh's website

This amazing website is all about minimalist origami. Dinh is a master of creating sculptured origami forms with relatively few folds, but with a massive amount of expression. I wish I could wetfold even a fraction as well as this.

Fernando Gilgado's website

Fernando Gilgado is a superb folder and you may have seen some of his published work. On his website, he displays a large selection of designs (El pensador is my favourite) along with a list of his books, and a few of his diagrams.

Eric Gjerde's website

Eric Gjerde's blog gives insight into the world of tessellation origami, part of the art which I know very little about. Using repeated patterns, he creates attractive 2d and 3d sculptures.

Haipo's website

Koshiro Hitatori's website

This is a website linking to Hitatori Koshiro's Origami and translation work. Although the site is a little difficult to nagivate (for someone who doesn't speak Japanese), if you look hard enough, you'll find some interesting designs.

Kakami Hitoshi's Origami Aquarium

Fish and origami - what's not to like? This site displays some great underwater designs, from goldfish to imaginary fish, and if you look hard enough, you'll find some crease patterns, too.

Takashi Hojyo's website

This site has some superb models on display. Many of the human figures demonstrate box-pleating at its most gonzo, and it is difficult not to be amazed by the complexity. Be prepared to spend hours figuring out how Takashi Hojyo does it.

Paul Jackson's website

Paul Jackson is one of today's origami greats. He was a pioneer of free-form origami sculpture, and no-one around does models quite like his. An occasional visitor to BOS conventions, he gives a very interesting talk on his techniques.

JJ Origami's website

This is another site which Google translate seems to mangle - there is a section entitled 'Oh Slugs', apparently. Once you get around this, you can find some interesting models and diagrams for what appear to be a series of Japanese masks and fantasy creatures.
