About the Author:

Robert A. Ellison Jr. encountered Abstract Expressionist painting in the late 1950s, and was intrigued by its concept of non-representation. By the mid 1960s he had begun to paint abstractly. Around this time, he also began to collect American art pottery, which was, as yet, undiscovered. Ellison became fascinated by the wider history of ceramics, and through collecting works he gained an intimate appreciation of its various periods. In particular, he became aware that the abstract qualities of George Ohr's pottery foreshadowed modern art. Ellison has also been involved in a long-running photography project centered on his collection of Ohr pots. The stunning results are published here for the first time.

Synopsis:

Containing 300 works by Ohr, this work features photography, accompanied by an accessible text.
