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.
