Description:

Cast in bronze directly from a real dried poppy, each one of these works is unique. They are finished with a sandy brown patina and natural beeswax. As direct translations of the original organic specimen, the poppies vary in length as this is how they were cut in the garden. Generally specimens range between 25 – 30cm in length.

Works are made to commission so please allow up to four weeks for a piece to be cast, finished and delivered once payment has been made. If there are poppies currently cast and ready for delivery, this will be listed.

Weight 95 gm
Dimensions 25 × 2 cm
Care Instructions:

Waxed bronze surfaces will always dull a little in time. To return the original lustre, gently buff with a clean cotton cloth.

Story:

Seed heads have provided just as many interesting and exciting Pomarius works as the many varieties of fruit and vegetables. The transferral to bronze is all the more dramatic since the original poppies are so light.
As every Pomarius work is unique, please only use the images here as a guide. The final patination of these pieces can range from a light sandy finish, to a darker brown.

Pomarius collections are unique ‘direct’ bronze casts of the produce of gardens, historical locations and ancient trees in the UK. The project is led by artist Alice Andrea Ewing, with every specimen collected, cast and finished by the artist at her suffolk studio and foundry.

Every work is a direct translation of the original organic specimen into bronze, produced by adapting the Italian Lost Wax casting method. The resulting solid bronze works capture every detail and curiosity of form.

Pomarius consists of a wide variety of natural specimens, fruits, nuts, chillies and other varieties of plant and produce. Many collections have developed from personal relationships between people and their homes, specific or ancient trees, and shared memories within these places. In every case, the translation into bronze is understood as a making explicit of the inherent value already held by the organic specimens – a value understood by the gardeners and carers of these locations.

All works are seasonal, with small collections produced each year alongside personal commissions.
