Poppies Commission

A friend asked me to make a piece that he could gift to a business colleague who loves California poppies. His colleague plants poppies everywhere he goes, gifts poppy seeds to his friends and colleagues, and is on a mission to recuperate California's diminishing state flower population. 

After consideration, I decided making the poppies in glass would be very tricky. Fitting the petals around each other and into the receptacle on the stem would be difficult. So, I decided to use clay.
