Riassunto: "Shearwater Pottery" coming December 15 2005. Dod Stewart, the author, dedicated several years writing and photographing this book. Marjorie Anderson Ashley, is one of the daughters of Peter Anderson, who founded Shearwater Pottery in 1928. Special sections by Mary Anderson Pickard, Walter Inglis Anderson's daughter, about her father and her son Christopher Stebly. History of the Anderson family: genealogy, early contacts with Newcomb College Pottery, George Ohr, & other facts. Sections dedicated to decorators: Mere Anderson, sons Walter Inglis Anderson and James McConnell (Mac) Anderson, brothers of founder Peter Anderson. Rare, never before seen pieces from family, private collections & museums. Plates of the thrown and decorated wares by: Patricia A. Findeisen, Adele A.Lawton, Jim Anderson, Michael Anderson, Chris Stebly and Peter W Anderson. Thousands of color plates of utilitarian ware, blacks, animals, pirates and sports figurals. Walter Anderson plate designs. First book devoted to artistic examples produced by this talented family in their more than 75 yrs of operation. Walter I. Anderson is considered to be the most important Southern artist and honored by the Smithsonian with a show. Book comes at a sad time since most of the pottery buildings, family homes and many of the examples in this book, no longer exist after the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Tragically, this book is now the only record of the Shearwater Anderson family compound along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, as it once was. Contains the most accurate record for identifying marks and dating Shearwater pottery., Photos of pottery bottoms and actual artists' ciphers and marks done by the Anderson family members. Pottery dealers & collectors will find it an invaluable educational resource, & investment. Previously difficult to accurately identify and date many pieces, especially those by Walter Anderson, who never signed his work which is quite valuable.
