Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Group of four pottery ceramic plates and one vase. All stoneware with a glossy brown glaze. The vase and two smaller plates are stamped along the footrim. The largest plate is unmarked.

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.

Plates; height ranges from 1 in to 1 1/2 in; diameter ranges from 5 3/4 in to 8 in. Vase; height: 6 in x diameter: 6 1/4 in.


All four pieces are in excellent condition with no cracks, chips, or losses. When inspected under UV light, there is no sign of restoration either. Throughout four pieces, there are minor firing and glazing flaws that are original to the artistic process. One of the plates has a distinctive firing flaw on its surface. Wear to their footrim, consistent with their use and age. 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.
