Isle Of Wight Studio Glass Makes Limited Edition Remembrance Poppies.
This is the time of year when we particularly remember all those men and women who fell in the service of their country during times of war. The year 2014 is
particularly poignant because it marks the centenary of the onset of that most terrible conflict, the First World War, and since WW1 the poppy has been the traditional symbol of the fallen. Inspired by the ceramic poppy exhibit in London, Timothy has been experimenting with making poppies in glass. We are so pleased with them that we decided to offer them as a Limited Edition of 100, and to donate a substantial part of the proceeds to the British Legion.
The poppies are available in two sizes. The smaller size has a stem length of 30 cm and a flower diameter of 8 cm, priced at £50, including postage. The larger size has a stem length of 40 cm and a flower diameter of 10 cm and is priced at £55.00 including postage. Each poppy will be signed by Timothy on the stem together with its number in the edition. 25% of the sale price will be donated to the British Legion.
