Tower of London poppy artist Paul Cummins' other ceramic artworks

As many as five million people are thought to have visited an installation at the Tower of London, featuring hundreds of thousands of ceramic poppies.

But what other works has the artist Paul Cummins created?

Mr Cummins was commissioned by the Arts Council to create a quintessentially English Flower Garden for the Cultural Olympiad of 2012.

A total of 500 ceramic roses went on display at Cromwell Green outside the Houses of Parliament.

His flowers were individually hand-thrown on a potter's wheel at his factory in Pride Park, Derby, and attached to galvanised steel rods, so they could move in the breeze.

The Olympiad - a programme of cultural events across the country in the run-up to the 2012 London Olympics - also featured an installation of ceramic flowers at Hardwick Hall, close to his hometown of Chesterfield, Derbyshire.

The selection of flowers included roses, delphinium and tulips.

As many as five million people are thought to have seen Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red at the Tower of London, which included 888,246 ceramic poppies - one to represent each British and Commonwealth death in World War One.

About 8,000 volunteers have been dismantling the exhibition before thousands of the poppies go on tour

They will then be permanently based at the Imperial War Museums in London and Manchester.

Mr Cummins has also produced ceramic flatware over the last few years.

He has also been commissioned to produce artworks at Chatsworth House, the Royal Derby Hospital and Blenheim Palace.
