This hand planished and polished poppy is intended for outdoor use. It can be placed in the ground for instant impact. Design based around the poppy variant “Papaver rhoeas”. The cross pein of the hammer is used on the metal surface to stretch the metal to create a curve surface. It also adds the vein effect of the petal giving it a more realistic look.
Keeps its shine for at least a season and can be polished if desired. No additional protection required as it will weather even if kept outside.
Large poppy stands around 1m tall with a diameter of approximately 140mm.
The small poppy stands between 0.75 to 1m tall with diameter 85mm flowerhead.
