888,246 Ceramic Poppies
Can you imagine making 800,000 ceramic poppies? A british clay artist has formed a team of like minded individuals and they are making it happen. All of the poppies will be installed by Armistice Day, November 11, 2014.
Britain entered World War I on August 5, 1914. It has been a hundred years since that horrific war. Clay artist, Paul Cummins, has created 888,246 ceramic poppies in honor of all Colonial or British fatalities during that war.
I found a video talking about their conception, the process, and the final product. Quite an amazing project. Enjoy.
