Commentary
"Utilitarianism is central to Wildenhain's aesthetic. Her emphasis on form rather than color, evident in Bowl...was an attitude she learned from her teacher Gerhard Marcks [sculptor, Weimar Bauhaus]. Both of these aspects are directly related to her Bauhaus training, as well as her interest in native ceramics of North and South America, which she studied and collected."
(Kay Koeninger, Revolution in Clay, 1994, pg. 21)
