Our skilled glassworkers make this series by hand in Kosta using lead-free crystal. First, three colour rods are melted together to form the hub of what will then be blown into a bowl, vase or dish. The molten glass is caught on the pipe in two batches, building up the parison that will be blown up. The characteristic small bubbles of the series are created after the first gather, and after the second, the glass body is attached to a new pipe, giving the product its stand and the glass.

“The poppy is associated with Demeter, the Greek goddess of fertility and the harvest. My inspiration comes from the moment the poppy opens up and spreads its seeds across the countryside. The colours symbolize the various play of colours in rain, frost, daylight and sunshine. The incredible shape, with its uneven edges and texture, was a bit of a challenge to create in glass.”
