Blue Tit & Washing Line - Hand-Painted Beach Pebble Art Picture (No. 1390)

£45.00

Original beach-combed pebble art, handmade using real sand, shells and antique sea pottery from the glorious beaches of the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland.

This seaside picture features a little blue tit, hand-painted onto plain beach pottery using metallic blues, greens and a bright yellow breast! The blue tit is sitting on a washing line made from driftwood pieces and a wire line. The laundry is made from some gorgeous pieces of 19th Century antique beach pottery with gloriously vivid patterns, despite decades of tumbling in the Scottish seas. In particular the piece in the middle features a sponge-ware leaf pattern! Wire wrapping has been used to make the blue tit's feet and beak, a seagull in the sky and the washing line.

This original pebble art 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:1390)


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.
