George Ohr (1857-1918) the self-proclaimed “Mad Potter of Biloxi” created a body of ceramic work which categorized him as an early leader in the modernist movement. His creative spirit and cultural legacy is recognized 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.
