Original beach-combed pebble art, handmade using real sand, shells and antique sea pottery from the glorious beaches of the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland.
This is a brand new range - incorporating original watercolour paintings and some of my most beautiful beach finds. The scenes and colours have been simplified allowing the natural beauty of the antique pottery to really pop out of the picture!
This seaside picture features a little seagull made from pebbles and pottery. The seagull sits on the the sandy beach (made with real sand!) alongside some pretty sea-shells. The Bass Rock sits on the horizon and is made from a lovely piece of sea pottery with the famous (and very appropriate!) 'seaweed' pattern. I've included an image of the seaweed pattern as it would have looked before it ended up in the sea! Wire wrapping has been used to add the finishing touches of a seagull in the sky, a fish in the sea and a beak and legs for the seagull.
I found the two pieces of pottery for the seagull very close together and have included a photo showing them still on the beach!
This original pebble art 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:1254)
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.
