Poppies Weeping Window by Paul Cummins Artist & Tom Piper Designer is the latest sculpture, part of the 14-18 NOW programme and a part of Hull City of Culture 2017. The sculpture is created from several thousand painted handmade ceramic poppies, they can be viewed pouring out from a high window to the ground below.

Teal & Mackrill Ltd based in Hull, have been manufacturers of specialist paints since 1908 and are famous for marine and functional paints under the Teamac and Coo-Var brands. In 2014 Coo-Var supplied some of the paint which was used at the famous Tower of London art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red. This marked 100 years since the first full day of Britains involvement in the First World War. This amazing sculpture can now been seen in Teal & Mackrill home town of Hull for the Hull City of Culture 2017.

Excitingly the poppies are now on display for all to see at the Maritime Museum in Hull City Centre. Pop along to see the spectacular view between now and 14th May 2017.
