New Hope Poppies was designed by Sycamore Tile Works to be a hopeful hanging art piece to adorn the New Hope Family Shelter in Bloomington, IN. It was largely inspired by an incredible glass mosaic done by Cody Abbott called “Poppies for Mamah” but with some fitting changes for New Hope. Poppies was also a good exercise in color contrast and flow. For instance, where the straight rows of sky meet the sun, we created intentional chaos with the pieces for dynamic effect. We also attempted to roll the tesserae in the fields to give movement. Way to go volunteers!
