I stopped in art shops everywhere I found them in Iceland. This place had the highest quality work at the most reasonable prices. Very nice work. Some even includes lava rock. Spectacular color glazes.

If you are in the market for unique ceramics/art, look no further. The owner is a true master of his craft. I picked up a few pieces for me and family members and they all love it.

I 'happened' along this shop while exploring Reykjavik on holiday. The pieces of art are beautiful, and the shop owner/artist is very knowledgeable and engaging! Definitely one of the highlights of my day exploring Reykjavik!

A short distance from Hallgrímskirkja (the largest church in Iceland, at least by height), this unique pottery shop is a wonderful stop for both the crafts as well as speaking with the owner, Guomundur Einarsson. We spent 45 minutes there much of it speaking with...More

The oldest ceramic/artists workshop in Reykjavich, Iceland. It was established in 1927. Small, tidy, working studio with pieces in progress out to be seen - along with the wheels, kilns, glazes and other tools of the trade. Pieces are small to medium size (easily manageable...More

This is the oldest ceramic workshop (and now a store, too) in Iceland and it's name LISTVINAHÚSIÐ means House of Artist Patrons. Since 1927, three generations make amazing hand-made pottery on the premises. You can see the kilns, the pottery wheels, meet the family and...More
