Poppies for Remembrance

Continuing the theme of ceramics this week, we thought we would share an amazing major art installation 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Redwhich is on display at the moment at the Tower of London. The final day of the exhibition marks 100 years since the first full day of Britain's involvement in the First World War.

888,246 ceramic poppies are progressively being made by hand by the potter Paul Cummins and his volunteer staff, using techniques that existed a century ago. Each poppy represents a British military life that was lost during the war.

Each individual and unique poppy was for sale to the public from the commencement of the large scale installation in August to raise money for charity. Every flower has since been sold.
