Having said that, the texture and color inside are so pretty that you might want to keep it empty, as it is pretty on its own as a sculptural decoration.
It was formed by hand, by me, from a single piece of clay, and is not made using a mold or a potters wheel. I scratched curvy lines into the surface of the inside to create the petals, and stamped circles into the base. Its delicate shape is given strength by my use of a very strong, textured, white clay, which I fired to stoneware temperature. This one is glazed with a deep pinky red shiny glaze in the textured imprints, but I didn't glaze the rest of it because I wanted the natural beauty of the creamy white textured clay to shine through and create contrast.
This piece measures approx 4 x (height) 2 inches
(11 x 5 cm)
Please note that each poppy is unique, and so yours might vary very slightly, but it will be very similar to the one pictured in the main image, and equally pretty, I promise!
