A potter on the Causeway coast, Patricia Millar digs local clay and incorporates found materials into her wheel thrown and hand-built forms. Unique colours from the landscape are achieved by using the ancient techniques of pit and wood firing.
Patricia’s work is not just about a place but made from its very essence. A featured artist on BBC Countryfile, Patricia has had work selected by the RUA, public commissions for Seamus Heaney HomePlace and Ards and North Down Borough Council. Representing Northern Ireland for My Creative Edge in Sweden, she is a regular exhibitor with Ceramics Ireland as well as solo and group exhibitions. Patricia shows her work at craft fairs including the Guildhall Derry, FE. Mcwilliams Gallery and Potfest. She makes private commissions, offers pit firing workshops and is invited to demonstrate her processes.
