In 1884, he exhibited more than 600 pieces. Early pieces were made of very thin clay and were crushed, folded and dented into odd shapes. Later pieces were often unglazed. Some pieces were lifelike renditions of animal heads, clothing, food, etc. Over 10,000 pieces were made, with no two pieces being the same.

In 1906, Ohr closed down the pottery and stored more than 6,000 pieces, which he left to his family. It was rediscovered in 1972.
