Framed beach collage created using antique beach pottery, stones, pebbles and driftwood found washed-up on the beautiful beaches of the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland.
This whimsical seaside scene features the iconic orange RNLI lifeboat. This particular one is the Mersey Class "Kingdom of Fife" lifeboat found in Anstruther. The lifeboat has been hand-painted onto sea pottery and sits alongside a pebble seagull, it's wings made from a tiny shard of blue patterned beach pottery. The seagull sits on a lovely piece of driftwood and a fragment of blue and brown spongeware pottery makes up rocks in the foreground. Two further pieces of pottery form islands on the horizon - one has a glorious brown intricate floral design! Wire wrapping has been used to make the beak and feet for the seagull, a tiny seagull in the sky and a silver fish in the sea.
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: 1303)
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.
