Format: Hardcover
This book has marvelous images of just some of the fine works that George Ohr created. The summaries of his life are correct to some extent but it failed to provide any deatails of his offspring or how they may have carried on the innate artist abilities, this is why I only give it four stars.

George Ohr 19 Feb. 2012
By Rtist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book shows an excellent selection of George Ohr's unusual work. It tells a good bit about his life as well. Any potter wanting a good glimpse at Ohr's work before going to the museum in Biloxi should start here! He is definitely a "one of a kind" potter!

The Mad Potter 23 Jan. 2012
By Melvin Biri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
An excellant book. This was very complete and well written. George Ohr was an intersting guy and I liked the detail attributed to his work. It did leave some questions for me about the origianlity/counterfeiting aspect. How do you tell? Who would know?
Inspiational !!! 25 Jan. 2015

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a Christmas present I gave to my brother. He has been working with ceramics for 40 years. He loves this book, says it inspired him to experiment with new techniques, glazes and mixtures of clay. His specialty is making ceramic wind chimes, but he also makes custom tiles, bowls, planters and some figures. You can see some examples of his items for sale and find contact information at http://home.comcast.net/~fjkoontz/pottery/Portfolio15.pdf
