OCEAN SPRINGS, AN SMALL TOWN THAT IS ALL ABOUT ART




Peter Anderson founder of Shearwater
Pottery
Most of family has participated in making Shearwater Pottery.  Peter founded the Pottery with his parents who had moved from New Orleans to Ocean Springs where that had bought a large plot of land on an inlet to the Gulf.  Today many of the descendants of Peter's and Andrew's family still make pottery

Shearwater Pottery show room is natural woods and rustic and speaks of the natural elements of the island it sits on

AAARGGH!




You may be two minds about the African American figures that are for sale,  but they do reflect the time period in which they were created and a culture that existed.  Even Whoopie Goldberg has a collection for her Wall of Shame.  
Pelican who filled his bill as fast as his belly can!


The Anderson family compound is still a working community of artists




Supplies are well stock right now, but disappear fast.
