When envisioning these pieces I thought of large billowing fields of orange poppies. I wanted to capture the poppy in the different stages of its life, from bud to flower. I also wanted to capture the different, longer, looser, shape of the California Poppy when compared to its red cousin. This wreath has three blossoms as well as two bud in their distinctive conical shape, all framed within a brass ring.
