A framed seaside beach collage featuring a highland scene - all handmade using antique beach pottery, driftwood, stones and pebbles found washed-up on the beautiful beaches of the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. The pottery I use is often 19th Century antique beach china - mostly Victorian.
This highland scene features a shaggy highland coo, hand-painted in metallic bronze, oranges and browns. A piece of grey stone and some patterned green beach pottery form mountains on the horizon. A lovely piece of driftwood and a piece of purple and green pottery make up the foreground. Silver plated wire has been used to make the legs and horns for the cow and a tiny bird in the sky.
The piece 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:1597)
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.
