Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Large studio pottery ceramic bowl. Glazed stoneware with MacKenzie's iconic finger marks along the inside of the bowl. 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: 6 in x diameter: 13 3/4 in. The bowl is in excellent condition with no visible chips, cracks, or dents. When inspected under UV light, there was no sign of restoration. Crazing throughout. There are some glazing flaws, which are most likely to be original to the artistic process. Wear to its footrim, consistent with its 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 condition@revereauctions.com with any condition questions.
