Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Group of three studio pottery ceramic vases. Glazed stoneware in various forms. 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 4 in to 5 1/2 in; diameter ranges from 3 1/4 in to 4 in.


All items are in excellent condition; no visible chips, cracks, or losses. All items have original firing flaws throughout. The vase captured left in the lot listing has crazing throughout; to the exterior of the body, there is a residue that measures 1/2 inch, possibly a sticker residue. The vase, center in the listing, has crazing begun to form towards the rim. All items have very light wear along the underside, consistent with age and use. When inspected under UV light, none of the items show a sign of restoration. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email with any condition questions.
