2 in stock


Medium green bird.  11cm x 11cm x 7cm. Each bird is individually handmade which ensures that every bird has its own unique cute and quirky personality.  This middle sized one is green with a white breast.  She is decorated with underglazes and oxides.  She has a red glazed beak.  Perfect on her own, in a pair or as part of a group.


Miley and Pat handmade ceramics are made by Mary Cowan in her studio in Dundalk, Ireland. The forms she makes, allows Mary to share her love of animals with her customers. While the work is based on birds, owls, cats and other creatures there is a correlation with human behaviour and emotion.

Mary’s work shows simplicity of form and decoration yet attempts to capture quirkiness and personality. Her ceramic creations allow the natural texture of the clay to show through by decorating with underglazes, oxides and a limited application of glaze

Mary is a graduate of University of Ulster, and BIFHE, Belfast. She is a founder member of ROGHA (Ring of Gullion Handcrafts and Art). She had exhibited widely in the UK and Ireland and her work is in the collection of Louth County Council and in other private collections in Ireland and UK. Mary’s craft business ‘Miley and Pat handmade ceramics’ is named after her border collie dog Miley and his favourite housemate Pat the cat.
