Our small contribution towards a
world's worth of gratitude.

In honour of our servicemen and women and first responders who have passed and
those who still experience the trauma today.

 ~ Poppy Artworks by Ballarat artist Ron Davis.~
Created to raise awareness and to contribute to the support of our veterans and families plus a beautiful remembrance piece for each story.

Ron is donating funds through his works to keep the conversation alive for those who risk 
their lives and make sacrifices that we can take for granted.  Bullets from various firing ranges are collected or donated and transformed into a remembrance piece,
each handcrafted individually.

Ron includes a poem to compliment the red and blue poppy design works.
Touching words to help us reflect and be aware of the effects of battle.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & Depression are a daily experience
for veterans and families and have evidently lead to increased suicide rates.

Ron aims to make a difference by supporting the resources that can help the
Australian Soldiers and their families.

An individually handcrafted poppy made from a handful of spent 303 lead core bullets, hand collected from a local military firing range used by the Light Horse, Voluntary Defence Corp, and Cadets dating back to 1906. No two poppies are the same. The purpose of the Battlefield Blue poppy is to increase awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Depression for those that have returned from posts and fight a silent battle.
Individually handcrafted, the Remembrance Poppy is also made from a handful of spent 303 lead core bullets collected from a local military firing range used by the Light Horse, Voluntary Defence Corp, and Cadets dating back to 1906. The Remembrance Poppy is a representation of the traditional meaning in memory of those who fought for our country.  Today, the the remaining 303 numbered series are limited and remain for key charitable events.
All pieces remain individually handcrafted un-numbered Poppies can be ordered..

Stories & Thanks

“I think what you have done, and are continuing to achieve for ex service personnel  and ordinary citizens has a great deal of merit behind it and that you won’t use any sort of lead other than that from a rifle /gun club range that fits in with the concept of what has been a contributing factor for so many past and present and well into the future as well.......” 
Jeffry Lowe, Justice of the Peace, Ballarat
Thank you so much for your initiative, skill and generosity in producing the poppies. They are a magnificent tribute which will be treasured by us and those who acquire them. And look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.
Dr Brendan Nelson, Australian War Memorial
