- BILOXI SCHOONERS
- REQUEST A TOUR
The city of Biloxi traces its beginnings to the arrival of the French in 1699. The City takes great pride in letting visitors feast on its 300 year history. Truly a museum without walls, every inch of Biloxi contains elements of its proud heritage and none greater than the majesty of the White Wings.
The Shearwater Pottery Exhibit represents the artistic lineage of Peter Anderson. Shearwater Pottery was founded in 1928 by Peter Anderson with the support of his parents, George Walter Anderson and Annette McConnell Anderson. From the 1920s through the present day, Shearwater Pottery has produced art pottery, utilitarian ware, figurines, decorative tiles and other pottery pieces. Shearwater Pottery is high-grade hard fired earthenware intended for functional as well as decorative use. Each piece is individual and unique in nature.
The exhibit will be located on the third floor of the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum from June 1st through the end of August. Regular visiting hours are 9:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Saturday and 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Sundays.
