The extraordinary 19th century ceramic artist and master potter, Ohr, rose from devastating personal and professional loss to create a stunning body of work from his home in Biloxi, Mississippi. Referred to as the “Mad Potter of Biloxi”, Ohr’s one-of-a kind artwork had no formal home. Although artist/architect Frank Gehry designed an award-winning Museum to house the collection, Hurricane Katrina had other plans in mind. What ultimately rises from the devastation is a monument to the enduring human spirit we all share.
