Warren MacKenzie (American, 1924-2018). Studio pottery ceramic teapot with bamboo handle. Glazed stoneware with MacKenzie's iconic finger mark decoration along the sides. 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 handle: 7 1/2 in x width: 7 in x depth: 6 in.


The teapot is in good condition with no major chips, cracks, or dents. Under UV light, there is no sign of restoration. There are minor chips along the spout and a 1-inch long chip to the underside of its lid. Crazing and firing flaws throughout. Wear to the bamboo handle and the footrim, consistent with use and age. There are some minor glazing flaws, particularly along the interior. Please contact us for a detailed condition report.
