Poppies

Every single one of the poppies in Paul Cummins’ and Tom Piper’s installation at the Tower of London, ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ has been sold. Each ceramic poppy, which took three days to make, will find its way to a new home once the installation is dismantled.

Where will they go, I wonder? Will they adorn a window box in a high rise block of flats, a chic office in the city, a potting shed in the suburbs or a cottage garden in the Home Counties? Once there, will they lose the significance afforded by their 888,245 companions – or will they gain a kind of poignancy of their own, like a lone piper playing a lament?

Maybe this page will help to answer the question. Have you bought one of the ceramic poppies?  If you are willing to help tell the story of the poppies’ onward journey, why not upload an image here of the poppy in its new home?  Over time the gallery will grow as the poppies tell a new tale all of their own…Please feel free to add a message or description with each image.

Once uploaded the images will be publicly visible. This page has no commercial purpose and the images will not be used for making money, simply for telling the story of 888,246 as they make their way home.
