SUMMARY

Pottery, Politics, Art uses the medium of clay to explore the nature of spectacle, bodies, and boundaries. The book analyzes the sexual and social obsessions of three of America's most intense potters, artists who used the liminal potentials of clay to explore the horrors and delights of our animal selves.The book revives from undeserved obscurity the far-southern Illinoispotting brothers Cornwall and Wallace Kirkpatrick (1814 -90, 1828 -96)and examines the significance of the haunting, witty, and grotesquewares of the brothers' Anna pottery (1859 -96). The book then traces theKirkpatricks' decisive influence on a central figure in the American artsand crafts movement, George Ohr (1857 -1918), known as "the Mad Potterof Biloxi" and arguably America's greatest potter. Finally, the book givesa new reading to Ohr 's contorted yet lyrical and ecstatic works. Abundantfull-colour and black-and-white photographs illustrate this remarkable art,with images of many Kirkpatrick and Ohr works being published here forthe first time.Mohr, Richard is the author of 'Pottery, Politics, Art George Ohr and the Brothers Kirkpatrick', published 2007 under ISBN 9780252074653 and ISBN 0252074653.
