Signed and numbered by William Amor, each poppy is a unique artistic creation, a sculptural flower made by hand from upcycled waste.
The petals are derived from the transformation of plastic bags.
The heart of the flower is composed of plastic fibers from fishing nets and ropes. The floral creation is shaped around a silver metal base fitted with a stainless steel stem. The work is mounted on a painted cube made of solid beech wood from French forests.
Height : between 55 and 65 cm
Weight : 56 grams (unpackaged)
INSTRUCTIONS FOR CARE
I am a Messenger! No need for water, soil or sun, like my friends, the original poppies. I need a little bit of care from you to stay beautiful and radiant.
Help me open so that I can blossom. With a gentle breath, my petals will reveal themselves. Delicately, place my lower petals in a slightly drooping position to reveal my pretty corolla. With your fingertips or a pair of tweezers, spread my stamens in the shape of a star.
To return me to my bud, hold me gently pressed in your hand and stroke me from bottom to top in a gentle caress.
Repeat this gesture. This will revive my pleats, but watch out for kinks! I like my red dress to flaunt its beautiful straight folds.
My creator has not abandoned me since you adopted me. If you find it difficult to make me look pretty, don't hesitate to consult him. He will be able to advise you.
