Warren MacKenzie Monumental Ceramic Platter

$ 4,500
  • Description
    Large studio pottery platter with brown decorative dashes.

    Warren MacKenzie is known for simple, wheel-thrown functional pottery influenced by Bernard Leach and the Japanese aesthetic of the work of Shoji Hamada.

    In 1950 MacKenzie and his first wife Alix became the first American apprentices at the Bernard Leach pottery at St. Ives. They spent 2 years there where they met Shoji Hamada. The MacKenzies brought Leach and Hamada for a workshop tour of the United States in 1952. This tour had a far-reaching impact on the American studio pottery movement. MacKenzie is credited with bringing the Japanese Mingei, or folk, style of pottery to Minnesota, where it is known as the Mingei-sota style.

    Most of his pieces are produced in stoneware, although he worked in porcelain at times during his career. His first wife, Alix, decorated his pots until her death in 1962. At times during the 1970s and most of the 2000s, MacKenzie did not sign his work. He resumed the use of his chop at the end of 2009.
