Twentieth-century and contemporary Nordic and international design with primary focus on studio ceramics.
Hostler Burrows is a New York design gallery founded in 1998 by Juliet Burrows and Kim Hostler. Initially dedicated solely to Nordic design and decorative arts, the gallery has expanded its program and now integrates a full roster of contemporary artists, both established and emerging, with historical works. While international in scope, the gallery’s primary focus remains in Scandinavia and rooted in the tradition of studio ceramics, particularly work by female artists.
The gallery is devoted to exhibiting work imbued with the qualities from which it has drawn inspiration since its beginnings - craftsmanship, intention, and integrity. Hostler Burrows’ unique vision and deep understanding of the sublime design which emerged from Scandinavia in the 20th Century carry over and inform the contemporary work which is brought to market with passion and a critical eye.
Hostler Burrows’ carefully curated spaces, both in the gallery and at the world’s leading fairs, have placed them at the forefront of the design market and introduced an international clientele to a new generation of important artists whose works, while often cutting edge, maintain a strong continuity with the past.
The gallery is committed to building longstanding relationships, both with the artists whose work they promote as well as the design clientele and community at large. Hostler Burrows believes in the ideals of beauty and authenticity, and strives to create a unique experience to share with its audience.
