Every single individual petal in this breathtaking sculpture is made and assembled entirely by hand, using only the finest English bone china. It is a painstaking and highly skilled process, shaping each tiny petal and stamen by hand, then building them up to create a flower that is almost as perfect and delicate as the real thing.
The traditional methods that we use to create each Poppy ensure that they are of unsurpassed quality, pushing the very boundaries of ceramic floral production. Once assembled and carefully fired in the kiln, the flower sculpture must then be painted entirely by hand to create an effect that is as close as possible to nature itself. This delicate and fragile piece must then return once more to the kiln to fire the colours into permanence; this is a flower that will never fade.
