London 2012 Festival

English Flower Garden: Paul Cummins

'Ceramic artist Paul Cummins will create a quintessentially English flower garden made of 10,000 individual ceramic blooms, on a potter’s wheel. This amazing creative feat will then be ‘planted’ in several outdoor locations around England. Part of Unlimited: the largest commission for disability arts in the UK.'

This is one of the many events/commissions going on in relation to the London 2012 Festival.

Complementing the sport events at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Festival will be the biggest party the UK has ever seen, with a huge range of events from leading artists from all over the world. '
