':,pottery Exhibit
At Habatat-Shaw

Habatat/Shaw Gallery will
host an exhibit and sale of the
work by the folk/funk potter
George Ohr through June 20.
n opening reception will be
held 7:30-10 p.m. May 22; the
public is invited.
Mr. Ohr (1860-1917) produc-
ed about 8,000 unique pots
before retiring in 1907. It is
only recently that his work
has been discovered by an in-
ternational coterie of collec-
tors. His penchant for throw-
ing paper thin pots and then
twisting, crimping and
crumpling them into odd-
shaped, asymmetrical vessels
did not appeal to the prevail-
ing Victorian sensibility. In
1971, a New Jersey antique
dealer bought the entire hid-
den cache of work from Mr.
Ohr's surviving sons and the
art world began to get a sense
of the scope of Mr. Ohr's
/ -accomplishment.
Typically, a thin pot would
be treated as a vase, twisted,
prodded and crumpled into a
bizarre yet somehow attrac-
tive pot. Mr. Ohr's glazing
was no less radical and he
would often use such founda-
tion colors as orange, pink, or
Tky blue and then, very ex-
( pressively, drizzle gun metal,
red or cream over the surface.
A selection of 75 pieces will
be on display at Habatat/
Shaw including 20 bisque-
glaze
pots. Mr. Ohr's bisque
l
work was his last, and
perhaps most mature work.
Habatat/Shaw Gallery
hours are Tuesday through
Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. or by
appointment. For informa-
tion, call Jeff Guido,
851-8767.
