Giclee Print of Laurie Blum's "Poppies!" Painting



Spring 2004
Garden of Paradise, Shiraz, Iran

It was glorious listening to my Persian music and painting each poppy. It is the beauty of the atmosphere that is sublime and intoxicating. Truly it is The Garden of Paradise! When I completed this work, the gardeners from the Garden of Paradise (part of Shiraz University) presented me with a bottle of the poppy seeds to take home with me.
A gardener there asked me why I painted Poppies; weren’t there more interesting subjects in the garden that I didn’t have in my country to paint? I told him, “I am not painting Poppies! I am painting the atmosphere that the Poppies imbibe here!”

Poppies' voice tells of the joy in every living thing. It is about the divine in all creatures, the male and female and the joy in all life and regeneration.

Traveling the globe, Mehera Blum of Blumera, delves deep into the culture and innate skills of foreign lands to create one-of-a-kind hand-sculpted pieces.

Beyond the design, incredible handcraft, vibrant colors, and exotic materials, clients often remark that there is an unusual, almost intangible, essence that is Blumera’s signature mark.

Some call it Love.

Mehera defines herself as a creator, and it is this magic of creation that inspires her.

Blum states, “The inception of the design begins with a spark of inspiration, which comes to me in a visual flash, this energy must take shape and this is creativity: bringing form to living energy.”

Though most of her pieces are handcrafted in Los Angeles, she designs and makes special pieces and collections the world over - whenever and wherever the inspirational spark is set aflame.
