The English Flower Garden by Paul Cummins

The English Flower Garden is a series of six installations with a total of 15,000 individually hand-thrown ceramic blooms mounted on metal rods and it is part of the London 2012 Festival. It is a celebration of the quintessential British love of flowers.

Paul Cummins' blooms are carefully displayed, an open and accessible way of viewing contemporary ceramic art. Each of the six installations have been created on the basis of its historic relationship with each location. The installations are carefully displayed in an open and accessible way of viewing contemporary ceramic art.

The English Flower Garden  has been commissioned by the Unlimited programme, part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
