Statement of Purpose

The Ohr Gallery of this exciting visual arts museum houses the largest permanent collection of the works of George E. Ohr (1857-1917), the self-proclaimed “Mad Potter of Biloxi.”  He claimed to be “unrivaled” and “unequaled” and was, by his own estimation, the “world’s greatest potter.”     Despite his reputation for eccentricity, Ohr produced art pottery that will be appreciated for centuries.  Ohr’s claim that there were “NO TWO ALIKE” is true.  The thinness of the walls of his twisted clay forms illustrate George Ohr’s unrivaled technical skill.
