A Rich and Rewarding Life

American pottery legend, Warren MacKenzie, left this world on December 31, 2018, at the age of 94.

It could be said that Warren MacKenzie was one of Bernard Leach's most successful and influential students.  After reading Leach’s “A Potters Book” in 1947, Warren and his wife Alix set sail from the US to visit Leach in Saint Ives, England. Both Warren and Alix had been studying ceramics at the Chicago Art Institute but felt something was missing in their education.
