Poppy Fixation


I've recently become enamored with poppies.  Not in a bad way, but I've been mulling over how I want to interpret them in glass.  I know other glass artists must make them, but I don't want to peek to see how they do it.  It's got to come from me.

My biggest concern is creating their delicate petals, so they are sturdy enough to wear, and yet look like they might move in a breeze.  They're still in the "germination" stage, but soon I'll sit down and try them out.

Tell me, do you have something you've been mulling over that is different than what you typically do?  Can you share?  We'd all love to know.
