Warren MacKenzie

Warren MacKenzie has described his goal as the making of “everyday” pots. Not surprisingly though, his pots are found in major museums and command high prices among collectors. MacKenzie has always kept his prices low and for various time periods did not sign his work (1970s, most of the 2000s). Most of his output is produced in stoneware, although he has worked in porcelain at times during his career. A sample of his amazing work can be seen below, and you can get his pieces relatively well priced from galleries around the world, as well as on eBay.co.uk
