About George Ohr Pottery

George Ohr Pottery InformationGeorge Ohr is recognized by many as the most influential and controversial individual in American art pottery history. George Ohr began producing art pottery in the early 1880s. It is estimated that Ohr produced approximately 10,000 pieces during his years of production. George Ohr ceased potting around 1909.

George Ohr pottery is typically characterized by the twisted, manipulated, and violently tortured nature of his forms. No two were alike and examples of Ohr's work were limited strictly by his imagination. Ohr's glazes were similarly unique and his pots are often recognized for their brilliant glazing. Later examples of George Ohr are entirely unglazed.
