Laura Johnson

Having grown up in Northern Ireland, studied English and Fine Art in Wales and taught in England I have continued my tour of the UK, moving to the beautiful Scottish Borders in 2010.

My husband Rich and I set up our home and studio in the eastern Scottish Borders not far from the sea which provides huge inspiration and material for our work.

An outdoor loving artist I am a bit of a womble and delight in beach combing and making good use of the things that we find!

Sea Glass and Sea Pottery

Each piece of sea glass and pottery has a mysterious history, having at one time been useful, decorative or leftover from industry. Whether plate, glass, lamp shade, tea pot, pipe, lantern, cup, ornament, bowl or pot the glass and pottery has been discarded and found its way to the sea. The waves, rocks, sand and sea water combine to smooth the broken shards leaving weathered beauties along the shore.

The sea glass and pottery in my jewellery is collected along the east coast of the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. We do sometimes venture further afield and kind people often save pieces for me from their coastal wanderings.
