Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Studio pottery ceramic lobed vase with a lid. Glazed stoneware. 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 (including lid): 11 3/4 in x diameter: 9 3/4 in.


The item is in great condition with no visible chips, cracks, or losses. Light crazing started to form. Original firing and glazing flaws visible. There is an accretion near the rim, which is only visible under UV light and can be cleaned easily. When inspected under UV light, there is no visible sign of restoration. Light wear to the underside.
