90 Years of Shearwater

August 9, 2018 - April 6, 2019

Shearwater Pottery, founded by Peter Anderson, opened to the public for the first time in 1928. Since its beginnings it has supported the livelihood of three generations of Andersons and become renowned for its gorgeous glazes and dynamic forms. This exhibition celebrates the ingenuity, creativity, and perseverance of Shearwater Pottery as a catalyst for the arts on the Gulf Coast.

Shearwater Pottery is still in operation after 90 years. See the workshop in action, and pay them a visit.

Beth and Marjorie Ashley recall the post-Hurricane Katrina devastation. Shearwater was hit hard. Resilient as ever, the family and the pottery have bounced back. Learn more about the family and the history.
