Curved Origami


Vietnamese artist Hoàng Tiến Quyết makes origami.  But these aren’t your ordinary origami.  He uses a technique called wet-folding, which as it’s name implies, adds water to the paper before folding.  This technique adds an additional layer of skill to origami as you now need to get the right balance of wetness to the paper so that the paper doesn’t dry to quickly, or get too wet to tear too easily.

The wet-folding technique is most often used for complex organic works, mainly animals.  Overall, I think the pieces are pretty neat.  I don’t think I would ever be able to make one of those though, I can’t even do regular origami.  I think commissioning some of these for a party would be cool though, if it weren’t expensive that is.
