James "Ford" Huniford :
"I have always been enamored with the strange and elegant shapes of ceramics presented by Hostler Burrows, a New York gallery specializing in Nordic and American design. I specifically enjoyed the innovative work of Maren Kloppmann, who created sculptural wall installations. Her ceramic works feature a combination of techniques that include throwing, slab building and coiling. In the sculptural wall-mounted series Deconstructed Wall Pillow III, the works appear to manipulate light, casting striking, netted shadows. These pieces add drama to their wall setting, drawing on the juxtaposition of colored glazes and creating soft tensions and unique geometries."
