The George E. Ohr Exhibition Catalogue

Wonderful book on the man who declared 'I am the greatest potter in the world'. Ohr (1857-1918) stopped making pots in 1906, afterwhich he stored away most of his life work, approximately 8,000 pieces, and instructed his family to guard them with their lives until such time when the entire collection of work "may be purchased by the nation". It was not until the late 1960s and 1970s that the work finally began to be unpacked and explored. Illustrations include some of Ohr's unique vases, teapots and vagina pots.
