Actually, it is the late origami master Akira Yoshiawa who pioneered the wet paper folding technique. We could easily guess at how such technique got its name. It must be related with water, which is needed to soften the paper during folding process. So as to make them have some flows, curved creases and rounded forms. Even though Quyet origami look very malleable, his creations are often rigid and shell-like.
