Frame Colours

A framed seaside beach collage featuring a highland cow, 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 whimsical highland scene features a shaggy highland coo with the rolling Scottish mountains in the background. The cow has been hand-painted in metallic paint onto white antique beach pottery. Slate, green terracotta tile and a floral patterned piece of sea pottery form the hills on the horizon. A piece of driftwood and pink sponge-ware 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). (Item:2247)

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.
