When I first saw these award objects by Fraser Reid, my first thought was, “that’s a great looking modern planter”. It turns out hey aren’t planters at all, they are actually awards, a trophy if you will. I think they need to be planters but the concept is really cool.

Since ancient times awards have been given out to recognize success and achievement, the modern ‘trophy’ is based on the vessels given out during the Olympic Games in ancient Greece which were designed to contain sacred oils. Over time the focus of the trophy’s form has shifted from a container to what is now merely a symbol of its past function The awards were created by casting synthetic plaster into sports trophy forms.
