Decorative Glass Panels ‘Golden Poppies’ By Tim Carter
Golden Poppies, is part of a series of decorative glass panels created by Tim Carter. Set against a symbolic firey red background, the golden outline of three Poppies stand true. The yellows and reds merge together to create a wondrous emotion. While the golden poppies are engraved by hand and enhanced by metallic paint.
The brass base is hand-rolled and uncoated bare metal which will naturally tarnish over time.
