Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Studio ceramic pottery vessel or vase with a lid. Glazed stoneware, marked 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: 7 3/4 in x diameter: 7 in.

Condition

There is wear throughout the lid and jar, in particular along the footrim, as expected from age and use. There is a minor crack in the rim, likely caused by the lid at some point. There are several scuffs along the shoulder. There is crazing throughout the glaze where it is thick. Lid shows no cracks, chips or damage.
