Susan Mackenzie Andersen Mackenzie Andersen works in the field of product design and handcrafted production. She was raised in a designer-craftsman business in a home. Weston and Brenda Andersen established Andersen Design on the coast of Maine in 1952. The company created a large inventory of slip cast functional forms, wildlife sculptures, original glazes and decorative techniques, made from raw materials sourced in the USA. Andersen Design’s founding mission was to create a handcrafted product affordable to the middle class. Mackenzie’s mission is to reinvent the company as a twenty first century designer craftsmen network, an updated cottage industry, using the Andersen Design brand as a marketing and a common designer-craftsmen community resource. In addition to design and production, Mackenzie is interested in history, philosophy, wealth redistribution, bitcoin, centralization vs complexity theory, and work as a quality of life issue. Part of the ceramic mindset is to understand the world at an interactive molecular level, a perspective that Mackenzie follows through in an independent study of the economic development policy enacted in Maine since 1976, the year Maine became a centralized economy. As with ceramics, Mackenzie analyses the economic development system enacted in Maine as many parts designed to work as a whole.
