Born in 1924 in Evanston, IL, Warren MacKenzie is considered an American ceramic master. After serving in the army in World War II, MacKenzie returned to Chicago and trained in ceramics.
From 1949-1952 he apprenticed with Bernard Leach in St. Ives, and in 1954 he joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota, teaching ceramics until 1990, when he retired and became a Professor Emeritus. MacKenzie lives outside of Stillwater, MN, where he continues to maintain his studio.
