"Ceramic Eggs of Life & Fate"

Kogga's work has been popular from the beginning, and is by now among Iceland's most respected ceramic art. A Kogga piece is found in quite many Icelandic homes. The eggs, made of white ceramic and decorated with intricate patterns, figurative and abstract. Somehow one came to feel that a particular kind of luck came with those eggs, much like with the eggs of life and fate in the fairy tales. Kogga makes both functional and sculptural pieces out of ceramics, and her work is influenced by the rough nature of Iceland, with strong structural surface-decoration. The studio and gallery are located in the cavelike cellar of one of Vesturgata's lovely old buildings, close by antique shop Fríða frænka, and the Reykjavík Art Museum. Admission is free.
