Framed Beach Wall Art - Radiant Reds - 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 deep rich reds, 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 piece of red embossed antique pottery (I've included a photo of the day I found this on the beach!)
  • a piece of terracotta tile that has a 'face' on it! (again, I've included a photo of the day I found it!) 
  • an old fragment of circuit board in orange and red
  • a lovely piece of driftwood
  • a piece of red sea glass - it is extremely rare to find a piece this size in this colour!
  • a septarian nodule (the red stone with white seams). It is thought these were formed millions of years ago when clay formed around an object and then dried out and cracked, allowing liquid minerals to harden in the crevices!
  • two beautiful pieces of red antique pottery with floral and leaf designs
  • two shells including a cockle and part of a scallop shell with pink edges
  • two pieces of red flash glass. Flash glass is a layer of white glass covered with a layer of red - a cost effective way of producing coloured glass in the early 1900's.

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: 3519)
