Oceans Trophy (2022)

I designed and produced a trophy for the winner of the Oceans category in the Wiki Loves Earth Portugal 2022 photography contest, organized by Wikimedia Portugal (WMPT), the Portuguese chapter of Wikimedia Foundation.

The trophy is made of two main elements: a medallion of recycled plastic (nylon) part of abandoned fishing nets taken from the Portuguese coast. The center of this medallion is filled with a high relief  shape of a coral also made of recycled plastic. The second element of the trophy is a walnut wood stand. American walnut wood is generally used in exquisite furniture and is much appreciated for its density, strength, veins, and color. This fragment was provided and prepared by Álvaro Cardoso, an expert in wood who collects scraps with which he creates delicate furniture.

The making of this trophy was part of a partnership between WMPT, fablab_lisboa, and Zero p.
