Slate & Driftwood Friendships

Crafty Coast



"There are good ships & there are wood ships; the ships that sail the sea, but the best ships are friendships & may they always be." ~ Irish blessing

This whimsical art painting was inspired by the Irish friendship blessing, and life by the sea. It features two friends in a sailboat which represents their friendship, on the sea which represents their friendship journey throughout life.

Makes an ideal gift celebrating friendship.


The raw materials used, started life as a branch of a tree & as part of a roof, & at some point in their journey, they made it into the sea, where they were worn & shaped by the waves before being washed up on local North Coast beaches. The painting has been hand painted onto the sea worn slate, & it is then carved into a driftwood base, which is planed at the bottom to sit securely on your shelves.

One of a Kind

Please note that each item is hand painted onto upcycled slate & driftwood, which has been shaped by the sea. Therefore, no two items will be exactly the same & will differ somewhat from original pictures, making your item completely unique.



Each sea slate & driftwood art piece comes with a Crafty Coast tag tied to the base, explaining the origins of the raw materials, being shaped & worn by the local seas. A small silver Crafty Coast sticker is placed at the back of the hand painted slate.


Colour reproduction

While every effort has been made to show accurate colour production, due to differences in individual screens, the actual colour of your items may vary slightly from the colour on your screen.

All Crafty Coast items are personally designed and made in Tracy Beattie’s studio on Northern Ireland's scenic North Coast.
