Ceramic Poppies Sculpture

Thousands of ceramic poppies used in the Tower of London installation, which marked the 100 years since the start of World War One, have gone on display at selected locations around the United Kingdom. Each poppy represents a British and Commonwealth death during the war.

Weeping Window is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic poppies seen pouring from a high window to the ground below; the other sculpture on tour, Wave is a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks. These two sculptures, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, created to mark the centenary of the outbreak of war.
