Each of the 888,246 poppies created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins that filled the Tower of London’s moat was sold, and if you bought one you might identify with the ‘now what do we do with it?’ question. Keeping it safe and showing it off is a challenge.

Sue Garnet felt that the frames she had seen weren’t displaying the ceramic floral sculptures to their best advantage.

“I wanted a frame that took into consideration the stem and the grass as the poppies were planted in the ground in the installation specifically to represent the soldiers’ boots tramping in the mud. On the back of the frame we made a pocket to store the presentation box, booklet and certificate so all can be treasured for years to come.”

This is just one way to present these beautiful poppies. Come and visit us at Framework Studios and we can not only simulate other designs, but help create your own, unique frame. Options include: displaying the ceramic poppy with multi-aperture mounts, to include photos or other memorabilia, opening frames to access the contents, mounting medals within the frame, numerous different materials and colours, perspex display cabinets…

This perfect poppy frame uses the richly coloured ‘Komodo’ moulding in red.
