Paper Poppies – creating the parchment version of Papaver nudicaule, more commonly known as the Iceland Poppy was a colourful delight. The gentle, bright hues were a treat to work with. Following this commission, we’ve added these to our Freshly Found repertoire.
On a poignant note – Paper poppies are not new. A poem written about the soldiers who died in World War 1 Trench Warfare in the Poppy Fields of Flanders was the inspiration. Since 1921 they have been worn as Remembrance for soldiers who have lost their lives in war.
