Seacycle – Pockets full of treasures

Seacycle make lovely keepsakes from washed up sea pottery shards, coloured sea glass, slate and shells, found on the beautiful beaches of the East Coast of Fife.

We’re delighted to see their return for the Spring Into Summer Art & Craft Fair

“There was always an abundance of sea china around the Kirkcaldy area probably a result of the past history of many pottery works which sadly no longer exist. The earliest history of a pottery recorded was about 1610. By the end of the 19th century there were four main potteries, Fife, Kirkcaldy, Rosslyn and Sinclairtown from around 1837-1932. They used a variety of techniques that made functional and decorative ceramics including hand-painting and sponge printing. Lots of the pieces I have found date back over 150 years verified by the finishing.

After years of collecting I thought I would try my hand at making something out of it so that other people can have a little piece of history of the Fife Coast.”
