We always love visiting the girl with the golden smile, Poppy from Pop & Scott. The shared workspace that Poppy has created alongside her partner Scotty is a fun and engaging hub of creativity, painting, pots, beers and machinery (although we don’t recommend those last two going together). Poppy is the face behind those ever popular Pop & Scott pots. When it comes to inspiration for her pots or any new work Poppy often draws from anything and everything around her. She often finds herself thinking about the space that the object will inhabit and what its surroundings will be, from that she will get ideas on what colours or patterns she’d like to create.
With a strong background in floristry, plants are an important part of Poppy’s work but she doesn’t let that define her style. More so, Poppy often absorbs ideas from the different personalities and energies of the people she works alongside every day “I love working with other people. That’s the main reason why we created this space. Wanting people to have a happy space to work and feel comfortable doing what they love and not feel judged in any way to be themselves creatively.”
Poppy always possesses a very positive and light heartened look on the world of art and design. Sometimes she may down play her creativity by just chalking it up to doing something that she enjoys, and perhaps it is that casual approach to her work that everyone has fallen in love with. Here work is very simple, honest and balanced much like herself and we hope to give you a glimpse of that in this short video.
