Framed Beach Wall Art - Perfect Purples - 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 beautiful purples, 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:

  • a large shard of purple sea glass - it is extremely rare to find purple glass of this size!
  • a beautiful floral patterned piece of antique beach pottery - the shape shows it could have been part of a handle of some kind. I've included a photograph of the day this was found on the beach! 
  • two very smooth pieces of rare lavender sea glass - one in the shape of a heart! (Manganese was added to glass in the late 1800's to remove the green tint of iron in the glass. It would have originally been clear but has turned purple over the decades through exposure to sunlight!
  • a crab's claw!
  • a beautiful piece of sea slate with a lovely shiny texture
  • a tiny pottery kiln stilt - these were used in ceramic factories to hold the pottery in the kiln during the firing process
  • a lovely gnarled piece of sea worn driftwood
  • a beautiful shiny baltic tellin shell
  • a tiny piece of sea urchin shell
  • another piece of antique pottery sponge-ware in purple
  • a pretty little ridged cowrie shell
  • a fragment of mussel shell

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: 3528)
