- Trophies and Certificates for the Teaching Award 2023

I created Teaching Awards trophies and certificates visualising the warmth and inspiration growing within the education environment with care. 3D printed entirely with recycled plastics, two figures are embracing the care and inspiration, sprouting out of the cloud.

This idea reflects on my belief that the best way of learning happens in the equal, open and inclusive environment than the hierarchical or segregated one. I wanted to remove the general aspect of trophies being a winner of competitions, which usually captured in sharp ans cold edges. Relating to my practice, interrogating the aesthetics between technology and nature, I introduced more soft organic, almost clay-like shapes to the trophies.
