Born in Kansas City, MO
Created by Warren MacKenzie and his wife Alix, this stoneware vase has a thin base, rounding outwards to its widest at the center, and forming a lip at the top. The vase's bottom two-thirds is covered in a dark glaze which contrasts with the light colored top third. Across the pot's widest curved surface are four winged marks. These were made by Alix when she brushed her fingertips through the Tenmoku and white glaze.
