Drain oysters, reserving liquid. Cut through oysters 6 to 8 times. Set aside. Place potato in a medium saucepan; add water and salt. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving liquid.
Saute onion and celery in butter in a 3-quart saucepan until tender. Stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Gradually add reserved potato liquid and half-and-half; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is slightly thickened.
Stir in cubed potato, oysters, reserved oyster liquid, garlic powder, pepper and parsley. Simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until edges of oysters curl. Garnish, if desired.
