Cone-cup-ahedra (2012)

A series of polyhedral sculpture I made stapling Dixie cone cups together.  They are meant to mimic Platonic and Archimedean solids, but the resemblance is ambiguous, so each piece can be mapped onto the structure of several different polyhedra.  The symmetry group is the thing preserved in each case.
