Pottery has continued to be a family affair at Shearwater Pottery since originally founded in 1928 by Peter Anderson. In 1930 Peter’s two brothers Walter and Mac joined the effort by building an “annex” where they created original molds to produce cast ware to be hand-painted. One family member who helps continue the process inside the Annex is Adele Anderson Lawton, daughter of Mac Anderson. WLOX Gulf Coast Weekend visited with Adele and the rest of the crew to show much of the process involved in creating the artwork at Shearwater Pottery in Ocean Springs, Miss.
