Framed Beach Wall Art - Beautiful Blacks - Sea Glass, Victorian Pottery, Driftwood, Flotsam and Jetsam

A treasure trove of some of my rarest and most favourite beach-combing finds. These special pieces have been thoughtfully arranged in clean, simple lines reminiscent of museum curiosity cabinets.

Each framed mosaic includes a blend of both man-made and natural items that have been washed ashore on the Fife beaches in Scotland including Victorian antique sea pottery, sea glass, driftwood, shells, pebbles and other found oddments! These precious fragments, collated in a spectrum of blacks and greys, have been artfully arranged and preserved behind glass, a little beach-combing adventure for your wall!

I love the contrasting textures of "old" versus "new" and the harmony between manmade and natural elements, all unified by colour.

As with every beach find, each is unique and some of these will be very hard to part with. This collage includes:

  • two large shards of black transfer-ware antique pottery with intricate designs still very vibrant - one of them has what looks like a buckled shoe on it!
  • a fascinating piece of long pitted metal 
  • a piece of white and black bonfire glass. (Bonfire glass is glass which has been heated to such a high temperature it has lost its original shape and developed pitting in the surface. This can date back to a time when landfill sites were located on the beach and periodically set on fire to help dispose of the waste!)
  • a lovely piece of black stone, possibly granite with gorgeous white curved markings
  • part of a pottery kiln stilt - these were used in ceramic factories to hold the pottery in the kiln during the firing process
  • a little piece of pottery with a partial makers mark that says "Staffordshire" and a little teapot!
  • a fun little piece of metal with a screw type shape
  • a little stone in the shape of a heart!
  • a gnarled piece of sea worn driftwood
  • a piece of stone with beautiful white pieces embedded in it - this could be manmade concrete type material or natural - I'm not quite sure!
  • a dark black piece of stone with almost an arrowhead shape

As you can tell, I feel quite passionate about these pieces. The excitement of finding a special piece, gifted by the sea, never quite leaves me so I hope you enjoy this assortment of beach-combing goodness!

All the pottery included in the mosaics are sea-worn ceramic fragments that wash up on the beautiful beaches in the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland. Much of the pottery dates back to the Victorian era, when ceramic factories threw their 'seconds' into the sea and locals used to cast their broken pottery into the waves for good luck! The rough Scottish seas have gently smoothed these fragments, but the patterns and colors remain vibrant, a testament to the craftsmanship of the time.

I have a range of these rare collections of beach finds in different colours. Each mosaic is priced individually based on the rarity and collectibility of the pieces included.

This original seaside art comes in a wooden box frame and measures 18cm square. Please choose your frame colour, either white wood or rustic washed wood (Item: 3527)
