James McConnell (Mac) Anderson
Little Green Heron Bird Block Print




Woodblock print of a little green heron bird in the water among tall grass by James Mac Anderson in 1988. Signed and dated by artist. Artist Biography: James McConnell “Mac” Anderson was born on August 9, 1907 in New Orleans. In the English tradition of his father, Mac was sent to military boarding school in Chattanooga, TN, and he later attended Tulane University Architectural School from 1926- 1928. In 1928 Mac’s brother Peter opened the Shearwater Pottery Factory in Ocean Springs, MS, and in 1929 Mac and his brother Walter built an annex next to Peter’s factory. In 1930 Mac and Walter began working at the Annex, where Mac made molds, fired the products and oversaw production of Shearwater. Mac married Sara Lemon (1910 – 2007) in 1946 in Ocean Springs, who continued to work with him in the Annex. In addition to the creation of pottery, Mac produced wood sculpture, woodcarvings, paintings, watercolors, oil paintings on Masonite and wood cut designs for fabrics and paper. Mac painted and decorated pottery prolifically until his death in 1998.
