Kristina Riska is a Finnish ceramic artist recognized for her unorthodox large scale pottery and artworks inspired by nature and the properties of light and shadow. Body Part III is the third edition within a series of six unique sculptures exemplary of the artist’s working method. Riska spontaneously hand molds each sculpture over the course of several months into monumental and elegant organic forms.
Founded in Tribeca in 1998, Hostler Burrows is New York’s leading gallery in mid-twentieth century Nordic design and was the first in the United States to exhibit exceptional work by the artists and designers Axel Salto, Berndt Friberg, Josef Frank and Finn Juhl.
Hostler Burrows’ operations have since moved to 51 East 10th Street and its program has expanded to include contemporary works by international artists. The gallery exclusively represents Kristina Riska and Maren Kloppmann.
Hostler Burrows now showcases an innovative program that integrates contemporary and vintage work in the fields of studio ceramics, cabinetmaker furniture and textiles.
