Description

A framed seaside beach collage featuring a highland cow and the Forth Rail Bridge in Edinburgh - 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 Fife scene features a shaggy highland coo with the iconic Forth Rail Bridge in the background. Both have been hand-painted in metallic paint onto white antique beach pottery. Green pottery forms the Edinburgh hills on the horizon. A piece of red and green sponge-ware makes up grassy mounds in the foreground. Silver plated wire has been used to make the legs and horns for the cow, a tiny bird in the sky and a fish swimming in the Forth.

The piece comes in a white wooden box frame and measures 18cm square.

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.
