Framed beach collage created using antique beach pottery, stones and pebbles found washed-up on the beautiful beaches of the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.
This whimsical seaside scene features a puffin, hand-painted onto plain beach pottery. The puffin is sitting on a piece of sea-worn pebble-dash masonry, found on Cellardyke beach. A little fishing boat, made from vibrant blue & white patterned beach pottery is bobbing on the waves and another piece of pottery sits in the foreground. Wire wrapping has been used to make the puffin's feet, a tiny silver fish and a seagull in the sky.
The piece comes in a wooden box frame and measures 18cm square. Please choose your frame colour (either white wood or rustic washed wood) using the drop down menu. (Item: 1392)
These fragments of patterned pottery and china gather between the rocks and pebbles at low tide. Many of these pieces originate from the 1800’s and 1900’s, sometimes dating back to the Victorian and Regency eras when the nearby town of Kirkcaldy was at the heart of the Scottish pottery industry. Despite being tumbled and smoothed by the Scottish waves for so long, the patterns and colours remain wonderfully vibrant and the transformative power of the sea ensures each fragment is entirely unique.
