WARREN MACKENZIE GALLERY
Warren has a unique grasp of space.

Squared -- Warren will take a rounded piece and simply square it.
Sometimes he may only square the neck, other times he may square the belly.
Triangular -- A rounded piece is paddled or shaped with a triangular belly.
The foot and neck will typically remain round.

'belly', instead, creating a 'barrel chest' where the volume of the piece
was greater at the top instead of the bottom.
Glazes - Shino, Matte Gray, Matte Brown, Temmoku, Salt, Yellow Ash,
