Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Three studio pottery ceramics including two vases and one dish. Glazed stoneware. Each marked 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 2 1/4 in to 7 1/2 in; width ranges from 5 in to 11 3/4 in; depth ranges from 5 in to 10 1/4 in.


All three pieces are in good condition. There are no visible chips, cracks, or losses. When inspected under UV light, there were no signs of restoration. Crazing to the glaze throughout. Some minor firing flaws throughout all three pieces. Wear to the footrim, consistent with age and use. In the dish, capture in the center in the lot listing, there is an area of uneven coloration which is most likely to be original to the work. There is an area with accretions along the underside of one dish. Please contact us for a detailed condition report.
