Another great reason to visit the Leitrim Design House this July is our ‘ceramic space’ where we welcome Kathy Mooney’s quirky new collection of ceramic animals. After thirty years of honing her craft Kathy has developed this signature collection of unique quirky animals. Brimming with personality, ‘The Clay Menagerie’ will be on view for the month of July. Although she lives and works in Dublin Kathy draws inspiration from childhood memories of her Granny’s farm in Wicklow. She works in white earthenware clay and uses very colourful glazes and underglazes. Each piece is individually crafted by hand from rolling out the clay to shaping the animals, resulting in each of the animals having their very own expression and personality. Each character is developed through a process of several rounds of glazing and firings.

This collection fits beautifully within the remit of the Leitrim Design House. We love to celebrate uniqueness and constantly seek out inspirational high quality craftsmanship. As with all of our collections in the Leitrim Design House, these original works may be purchased on deposit and paid off over a number of weeks.
