Shearwater: The Christopher and Kristen Hogan Collection
Mississippi Sound Welcome Center
June 4 – November 30, 2013
Christopher Hogan, MD and his wife Kristen enjoy a passion for collectingShearwater Pottery. Their interest developed because of their fascination with the story of how Peter Anderson (1901–1984) was joined by his younger brothers, Walter Inglis (1903–1965) and James (“Mac”) McConnell (1907–1998), to form a family enterprise in Ocean Springs Mississippi. Shearwater Pottery is still in operation, continuing the proud family legacy by embracing the family’s traditional forms as well as creating a new body of work.
