Warren MacKenzie and Randy Johnston | Two Great American Potters
Exhibition Highlights
At the grand age of 94, Warren MacKenzie - Minnesota's self-professed ‘man of mud’ - has become a legend in the world of studio ceramics.

One of the last living students of Bernard Leach, the British potter and writer responsible for the studio pottery revolution of the early 1940s, for over thirty years MacKenzie transformed the landscape of American crafts as Professor of Ceramics at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

His honest, unpretentious pots are held in major public collections all over the globe, while his generous teaching style has encouraged an extraordinary pilgrimage of young potters to the Mid-West over the last fifty years.

Now in his seventh decade working with clay, MacKenzie is no longer producing pots for exhibition. This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire work by America’s most important potter.

Having studied with Warren MacKenzie and Hamada's favourite apprentice, Tatsuzo Shimaoka, Randy JohnstonJohnston is one of the most exciting and innovative potters working in America today. He is recognized internationally as an artist who has pursued functional expression and brought a fresh aesthetic vision to contemporary form, and for his many contributions to the development of wood kiln technology in the United States. We are delighted to announce that he will be joining us at the gallery on Saturday 23rd June.
