Resume

Artwork

Warren MacKenzie studied painting at Art Institute of Chicago then switched to ceramics after serving in WWII. Captivated by pottery, he and his wife Alix made regular trips to Field Museum of Natural History. They then went to England for a happy and productive apprenticeship with Bernard Leach in St Ives meeting Lucie Rie, Hans Coper and Shoji Hamada. On their return, they settled in Stillwater, MN where he continued his studio and still lives till today. He became professor of ceramics at the University of Minnesota teaching legions of students and making Minnesota a clay state retiring in 1990 a Regents Professor.


“Don’t overlook the less obvious pieces, the simple bowls, plates or yunomi…extraordinary objects because they are ordinary objects. It is in these that you will find the real pots, the real MacKenzie” John Reeve
