Growing up, Cliff’s favorite wildflower—growing right in his own backyard—was the California Poppy. He loved its structure, from the beautiful wedge shaped petals, to the perfectly circular receptacle at the base of the petals, to the frond shaped leaves and the long straight stalks. When Cliff and his husband David moved to California and David saw the flower for the first time, he too fell in love with it, not only for its structure, but also because it is orange—his favorite color. Because of their shared love of this delightful flower, the two of them set out to design their first collaborative pattern together. The combination lined and translucent beads give each petal its signature, subtle shapes and luscious glow. The flowers can be beaded to be more open or more bud-like, and the twisting stem adds a bit of artistic flair and grace to the overall piece.
