A cute 'under the sea' beach collage featuring two pretty jellyfish made from antique beach pottery and shells 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 seaside scene features a pair of jellyfish, made from beautiful spongeware sea pottery. The rocks on the bottom of the sea are made from bigger pieces of pottery, one with a beautiful pink floral pattern. Some little shells are clustered on the sea bed.  Silver plated wire has been used to make the jellyfish's tentacles and a little seagull hovering 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: 1852

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.
