A collaborative work, Flowers of War is inspired by World War One stories and artefacts gathered from local communities and museums.

Each element of the work is an enamelled wearable brooch, either a leaf or a flower associated with sites of the Great War or memories of the home front. The objects adorn a large steel wreath.

The wreath is a work in progress.

People can contribute to the wreath by uploading images of artefacts and memories to an existing World War One website and sending the link to the artists at www.flowersofwar.org (until July 2018).
