A handmade pebble art beach collage featuring a cute puffin and a blue whale, 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 whimsical seaside scene features a puffin, hand-painted onto plain sea pottery. Puffins are synonymous with Anstruther and the Isle of May. This stunning nature reserve sits just off the coast in the Firth of Forth. Alongside the puffin a little blue whale is swimming in the waves. The whale has been created using plain blue sea china with a piece of blue & white transferware for it's tail! The puffin sits on a lovely piece of weathered driftwood and a further piece of blue and white sea beach pottery forms rocks in the foreground. A tiny piece of green sea china has been used to create the Bass Rock on the horizon! Silver plated wire has been used to make the feet for the puffin, a seagull in the sky and water spouts for the whale.


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: 1862

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.
