Poppies are one of my favorite blooms. The varieties amaze me and the colors are so vibrant and full of life. I saw these lovely specimens while driving through my city's streets and pulled over to snap a few photos.
Aren't they wonderful? Full of gesture and poise, each flower holding a pose unique to itself.
I experimented with a slightly deeper hue of red enamel in my studio.
After sifting this crushed red glass onto silver discs I set out to firing them to discover the results.
Deep Poppy Red!
