Bronze California Poppy, Antique Tall Rectangle
The California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) is my state flower, so of course I have to have one in my collection. The petals are so thin they disappear when one of these flowers are made of metal clay so I have made a mold of bud just ready to open and some of the lovely leaves of this plant. The leaves may look familiar; I use them on the back of most of my crastions!
Hand cast using bronze metal clay. Each backside has a unique leaf pattern. Sealed with lacquer to preserve the shine.
