This large oval vessel records the history of the landscape from mineral soil to the first early farmers to over use of the land, to the build- up and cutting of turf. Patricia’s interest in the Neolithic, Seamus Heaney’s poems about the Bogland and the restoration of the peatlands have come together in this ceramic piece.


The resulting piece is not only about the colours and textures of the landscape but being made from it’s very essence, it captures it’s ancestry too, a Timeland.

Artist Bio

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.
