Poppy Design

Inspired by the beautiful poppies in my garden and their journey each year from seed to blossom.

Known here in Ireland as the ‘cailleach dearg’, the arrival of the poppy flower is a signal that spring has come and summer is on her way. I decorate my pieces with this design to celebrate the beauty and colour that surrounds us. Each individual piece is cast using stoneware slip and hand painted with the vibrant red of the poppy flower. Every piece is unique and passes through my hands many times over the course of two weeks until it is finished.

“I recently purchased some fabulous egg cups from Siobhain as a wedding gift. They were beautifully packaged and the bride and groom adored them! Such a unique gift idea. I’m sure they’ll be back for some matching pieces once their house is finished. Thanks again Siobhain.” Karen Twomey, Fermoy, Co Cork.
