George Ohr, an almost unknown American potter in 1972 when we wrote the first article about him, is now the darling of collectors and museums. Several books on Ohr have been written as more and more information and theories about his work have appeared. George Ohr, Art Potter: The Apostle of Individuality by Robert A. Ellison Jr. (Scala, NY, 2006, hardcover, 176 pages, $65) is the latest book. The author, an artist, photographer and collector, features his collection and his theories of how and why Ohr made some of his unique pots. A thought-provoking book with glowing pictures of a great collection. For the very dedicated Ohr collector or for your coffee table.
