Frame Colour

A handmade pebble art framed picture featuring a cute seagull and whale. Everything is made in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland from antique sea pottery, stones, pebbles and driftwood collected whilst beach-combing on our beautiful Scottish beaches. The ceramics and china I find is often from the 19th Century - mostly Victorian. 

This seaside scene features a little seagull made from plain white pottery, its wings made from a tiny shard of cornflower blue Scottish sea glass. A whale is swimming alongside, made from a striped piece of broken china. The seagull sits on a beautifully floral patterned piece of antique blue and white pottery. On the horizon a lovely swirly piece of green pottery forms an island, possibly Berwick Law! Silver plated wire has been used to make the feet and beaks for the seagull, water spouts for the whale and a seagull 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).

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.
