Still Life with Blue Ceramics, Succulent, Irish Killiney Beach Stones, by nature artist Paula Kuitenbrouwer.
Blue ceramics are a thing in Ireland. Ireland's garden centres sell deep-blue glazed pottery, both large and small. Together with cacti, succulent plants and Killiney's beach stones, they make lovely miniature rock or Zen gardens.
Killiney beach, located near Ireland's capital, Dublin, has a cobble stone beach. This beach is a delight for stone collectors. Killiney beach has some of the oldest rocks in Ireland: large boulders of Leinster granite and limestone are strewn all over. Small pebbles of a distinctive micro-granite from Ailsa Craig in the Firth of Clyde can also be found. No wonder that I bring back home a good few of these stones and show these beautifully decorative pebbles in my still lifes.
There is something special about combining blue ceramics, that represent the bluish ethereal colours of Ireland's coastal areas, with the dull but decorative grey stones, and the slow growing succulents and cacti. The stones are very old, the cacti and succulents grow slowly and the blue pottery looks ageless, no matter. These miniature little Zen or rock gardens look fresh and they hold your gaze for a while.
