Lovely to see a family business and property survive the years and thrive! Gorgeous pottery, statuary, and paintings! Very helpful staff and loved that the pottery was being made on site when we visited. Ocean Springs is lucky to have the dedication of so many artists.
Shearwater Pottery was founded by one of the brothers of Mississippi artist, Walter Anderson. Some of the brothers' art and pottery are also on display at the Walter Anderson Museum. The Pottery is tucked out of the way in the woods of Ocean Springs, and visitors are welcome.
I really enjoyed the pottery and artwork displays at the Shearwater Pottery location. The regional influences are evident in the many hand-crafted items on display and available for purchase. There is a small section with items recovered from the Katrina destruction, which are not for sale. Knowledgeable staff.
After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor about Ocean Springs attractions, we visited Shearwater Pottery and discovered why this is highly recommended. We took a nice walk from downtown to this location on a beautiful day. And happily purchased two items from the showcase and helped by a most friendly lady. Colorful and beautiful artwork. And great to learn more about... 更多
Like another reviewer mentioned this is a must do after the Walter Anderson museum. What a talented family with a genuine love for the area, the history, and the wonderful wildlife that inhabits it!

I've always wanted to visit the Shearwater Pottery after learning about Walter Anderson. It's amazing that the family has passed on the business through the years. The pottery is lovely and very affordable and the sisters that were there were an absolute delight to talk to! I could have stayed for hours hearing their stories of how pottery became so... 更多
I collect Shearwater Pottery. Today, they had a piece that I have wanted for many years. I was able to buy it today off the shelf in a great glaze. I have brought Shearwater for many years and have given it away for presents the last 30 years. It makes great gifts and I have never had any complaint, only... 更多
we enjoyed our visit to this pottery. They were having a group tour when we arrived and as the school children were leaving you could tell they had enjoyed their time also..
A bit off the path I make sure to stop by for any gift. The pottery here is amazing, they use original molds from Walter Anderson and always have pretty much everything in stock. This place is excellent for finding the perfect gift for those pottery fans.
