George E. Ohr, whose family was originally from France, was born in 1857 in Mississippi and is well known for his work with modern clay forms and for the amount of work that he produced. Reportedly he produced more than 10,000 pieces and claimed that no two were exactly alike. Although many collectors now consider him a genius, in the late eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds, other craftsmen did not accept him because of abstract expressionistic pottery or because he boasted and was considered a loudmouth.
