The “Mad Potter of Biloxi” created this very special piece. SOLD.
George Ohr (1857-1918) the self-proclaimed “Mad Potter of Biloxi,” created a body of ceramic work which defied the aesthetic conventions of 19th century America. Ohr is considered an early leader in the modernist movement. His extraordinary cultural legacy is recognized for its power and integrity and for its important influence on 20th and 21st century art. Ohr’s work was rediscovered in the 1960s and is admired by artists and collectors alike. (adapted from georgeohr.org)
