The best part was the museum section with the oldest pieces of pottery some of which Walter Anderson painted. There wasn't a lot to purchase if you where there solely for shopping. It's for sure off the beaten path.

definitely off the beaten path. the historical pieces on display were very interesting but the pieces for sale are nothing special, just typical ceramics.

The pottery here is distinctive and lovely, but so, too, is the history. The Anderson family is synonymous with art in this town, and it all started with pottery. It continues with the contribution Walter Anderson made to the community. So any trip that starts...More

Part pottery museum, part custom pottery ordering place, part Anderson family artwork display, but mostly showcase for wonderful pottery you can't live without. Numerous examples of the best the Anderson family can produce. If you time the visit right you can tour the production sheds....More

I’ve visited, and, loved this place for over 40 years. As a child, if I couldn’t be found, I was likely in the deepest reaches of the showroom, a room that precariously perched above the marshy edges of the harbor. Hurricane Katrina took the room,...More

Always love going to shearwater pottery. See sometime new every time I go. Its one of the few art forms I can afford. Worth stopping by just to look, if nothing else.

After visiting the Walter Anderson museum we headed here. Beautiful pottery! Only place you can by it except for second hand/internet. You can easily find a piece of pottery for under $40 if you just want a small keepsake.

Nice drive from New Orleans, especially along the gulf. Usually open 7 days a week. Fun to check out the newly made pottery, and pick up a new bowl, a lamp, or some unique Christmas gifts. Glazes are pretty earth tones, with natural themes. These...More

I have been collecting figural Shearwater Pottery for years and just recently purchased dinner plates and bowls to add to my coffee mugs. They are treasures!

This is also a 'must see' in addition to the Walter Anderson Museum of Art. This is part of the Anderson family - an extremely talented family, if not a 'bit' eccentric! Beautiful pottery, artwork. There is a Peter Anderson Festival in Ocean Springs, usually...More
