Two wheel-thrown and heavily glazed stoneware vases by Minnesota potter Warren Mackenzie (b. 1924). A student of Bernard Leach, Mackenzie's work was highly influenced by Leach's mentor, Shoji Hamada. HIs half-century output of mingei pottery--functional, everyday pieces characterized by simplicity and subtlety of form and glaze--has made Mackenzie an internationally renowned figure in the craft world. The smaller, white piece here bears Mackenzie's stamped monogram. It also has an apparent kiln fissure. The larger piece is unmarked. Both are from the estate of Elvira Peake, a Pittsburgh area potter and gallerist. Price is for both pieces; measurements are of taller piece.

Condition
Good. The smaller (white) piece has an apparent kiln fissure (pictured); the larger piece is in fine original condition.
