Folded paper models of Mediterranean vegetables mounted on stands.

Keywords: origami design, lettering, calligraphy

In October 2010 I went on a geography field trip to Athens, Greece with 24 others from my year. On the last day our lecturers surprised us with an award ceremony for random achievements - I got a cap labelled 'ΕΛΛΑΣ' as a 'Best Greek Award'! We in turn got our lecturers presents, and these tongue-in-cheek trophies were my offering.

Each trophy is about 7 inches tall. Inscribed on the base in fancy lettering is the name of the award, the name of the recipient, and a short description of what they did to merit the award. The trophy stands are plastic 'Tesco syrup sponge pudding' pots kindly donated by a housemate. The vegetables themselves are origami models folded with double-layered craft paper and attached to the stands with lolly sticks. I had diagrams for 'Green Pepper' but the model didn't resemble the real thing very much, so I made my own design:

Special thanks to Sarah for letting me have her pudding pots.
