Tower of London ceramic poppy display

In November the poppies from the internationally acclaimed ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ installation at the Tower of London went on sale to the general public. The poppy installation commemorated the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Great War, and was the work of ceramicist Paul Cummins and theatre designer Tom Piper.

A local commemorative poppy owner approached us to devise a delicate and simple method of fixing her commemorative poppy to an internal wall to create her own mini Tower of London poppy installation. The team here at Ironart came up with this solution which incorporates two neat screw holes in the poppy stem and a forged scroll tail to finish it off. If you’d like us to modify your poppy in the same way, we’d love to help, please get in touch 01225 311273.
