Pair of Seagulls - Beach Pottery & Pebble Driftwood Ornament (No. 1124)
A driftwood ornament created using driftwood, antique beach pottery, stones and pebbles found washed-up on the beautiful beaches of the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.
This tiny seaside scene features a pair of mini pottery seagulls, one has wings made from an upturned mussel shell, the mother-of-pearl still visible. The other has a little piece of blue and white pottery to create a wing. One seagull perches on an antique pottery stilt, used in the ceramic factories of Kirkcaldy to hold the pottery whilst in the kiln. Two more pieces of antique pottery form grassy hills. One has a beautifully vivid rose pattern and is probably from the edge of an antique plate. Wire wrapping has been used to create the seagulls feet and beaks and a seagull in the sky.
The piece measures approximately 6.5cm wide by 8.5cm high. The wood has a flat bottom so the piece can be a freestanding ornament. (Item: 1124)
