Reviews

"In 2010, ninety-two years after Ohr died underappreciated, Biloxi opened a museum to him, a $40 million cluster of silver pods overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, its architect the noted Frank Gehry. On display are a selection of Ohr's impossible pottery-as stout as amphorae yet as light as leaves. But to see a greater range of his widely scattered surviving work you need to look through one of the richly illustrated books about him. George Ohr: The Greatest Art Potter on Earth, by Eugene Hecht, is bursting with vases and pitchers and bowls as individual as rose blooms and as ripply as sea waves."
