Welcome to Circle Mobile, the place to find my origami mobile creations. Each mobile is personally hand crafted and designed. The colors, sizes and shapes are all factors in each mobile’s creation. This modular origami is created using individual interlocking pieces of origami.
Please browse the collection. There is only one of each mobile making them truly unique. I am also able to work with you to make a custom designed mobile.
This mobile feature four kusudama hanging from a curly wire frame. Each ball is made from 6 to 12 pieces, with paper ranging in size from 7.5 cm to 15 cm. These are windmill based models, designed by Meenakshi Mukerji.
To compliment this snowy season, this three piece mobile features a blue pastel color theme. Three star shaped kusudama are used, each made from 30 individual pieces. Paper sizes range from 4cm to 7.5 cm.

Trying to find inspiration for my next mobile, I came across this lovely ball designed by Ekaterina Lukasheva. This 30-piece ball is slightly different than most of the kusudama that I’ve been making. The pieces don’t have “pockets” to interlock the pieces and instead use the folds of the pieces to hold the ball together. I personally choose to use glue when assembling the ball but it can be made without glue. The ball is fairly large; I used 7.5cm x 7.5 cm sized paper and the finished ball was about 15 cm in diameter.
Here are the videos for folding and assembling the ball:
