Mid Derbyshire MP Pauline Latham has praised local artist Paul Cummins, whose work ‘Candy’ was on display at this week’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Prior to the election, Mrs Latham visited Mr Cummins in his Derby studio to get a preview of ‘Candy.’

The work consists of 2,300 handmade and painted ceramic tulips mounted on a column made from sheet copper.

Mrs Latham says Paul should be ‘proud’ of his work. She said: “Candy is an amazing piece, and it is great to see that all of Paul’s hard work has paid off.

“I have one of his ceramic poppies in my home, and having seen at first hand the quality of his work. I am proud to have been able to support him.”
