Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Pair of studio pottery ceramic bowls. Glazed stoneware with MacKenzie's iconic finger marks 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.

Each; Height: 3 3/4 in x diameter: 6 in.


The bowls are in excellent condition with no visible chips, cracks, or losses. Both items have original firing flaws throughout. The bowl captured left in the lot listing has a light 1/2 inch sticker residue to its exterior, which is not adhesive. Along the underside, there is very light wear, consistent with age and use. When inspected under UV light, there is no sign of restoration.
