Inspired by the popular garden plant, these pieces evoke the delicate papery petals, complex centers and brilliant colors of Oriental poppies.
The vibrant colors of the petals are complemented by the rich black of the "eyes" and center. (The Himalayan Blue option has light blue petals and a yellow center.)
Each of the five petals is individually shaped and textured and then joined together. The center is constructed separately. The two pieces are joined together in the glaze firing.
Your poppy can be displayed on a table or try "floating" it in a large glass bowl. A hole in the back allows for it to be hung on a slightly angled nail; use anchors in drywall.
Medium Poppy is approximately 7.5" in diameter and 2.5" deep; all measurements are approximate.
