Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Group of three studio ceramic pottery pieces. Glazed stoneware including one pitcher, one cup, and one salt cellar. Each stamped along the footrim.

Warren MacKenzie was a renowned Minnesota studio potter. A student of Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, he is credited with bringing the functional Mingei tradition to the United States, and spreading it through his own art and mentorship of students during his long tenure at the University of Minnesota.

Height ranges from: 3 1/2 in to 4 3/4 in; diameter ranges from 3 1/2 to 4 1/4 in.

Condition

There is wear throughout all items, in particular along the footrims, as expected from age and use. The pitcher has a small chip along the spout (1/8 inch long) but is otherwise sound and intact. Both the cup and salt shaker are free of chips, cracks and significant damage.
