Frame Colour

A treasure trove of some of my rarest and most favourite finds. Each 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 and other found oddments! These precious fragments, collated in a spectrum of beautiful sunny yellows and pale oranges, have been artfully arranged and preserved behind glass, a little beach-combing adventure for your wall!

I love the contrast of textures, "old" versus "new", manmade and natural - all brought together using 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 transfer-ware antique pottery with a retro design of a flower - possible a daisy
  • three pieces of super-rare yellow sea glass - two with a mottled white pattern and another thicker piece with a criss-cross etched pattern
  • a striking sea snail shell in yellow and browns
  • a section of fisherman's rope in yellow with blue flecks
  • a shard of pale yellow milk glass also known as opal glass (a type of glass that was opaque rather than transparent and popular in the early 1900's)
  • the top of an old compass - super!
  • a knarled object that looks like part of a tooth (cow/horse) or could possibly be just wood!
  • a piece of weather-worn driftwood that looks like a little tree
  • part of a pottery kiln stilt - these were used in ceramic factories to hold the pottery in the kiln during the firing process
  • shells including a white cockle and an orange limpet

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 pottery has been gently worn smooth by the rough Scottish seas but the patterns and colours remain vibrant, a testament to the manufacturing processes 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: 2831)
