tourné or turned
I just came across this myself and it seems that these are either referred to as tourné or turned vegetables. It comes from the French "tourner" and involves cutting the veggies into shapes, as the previous answerer already explained. I discovered a culinary forum (see link below) in which the merits of this are discussed - apparently it's pretty tricky, and I think there are even special knives for the purpose ...
Obviously too late to help the previous asker, but I figure this may help anyone who comes across this term in future.
I found the term by doing a google search for tourn (the root of the French verb) and vegetables.
