Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Group of two studio pottery ceramics including a bowl and a small tazza. Glazed stoneware, the bowl with an incised grid 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.
