Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Group of six small studio pottery ceramic teabowls. Glazed stoneware with various decoration along the sides. 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 2 1/2 in to 3 1/4 in; diameter ranges from 3 1/4 in to 3 1/2 in.


The cups are in excellent condition; no visible chips, cracks, or losses. The cup captured lower right in the lot listing has crazing throughout. The cap captured upper left has very light crazing started to form along its exterior, which is only visible under careful scrutiny. All items have very light wear along the underside, consistent with age and use. When inspected under UV light, no signs of restoration were visible. 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.
