oh poppy! a new hue...

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! 

If you want to take a look, they are here in my etsy shop.

happy monday!
