Just before you reach the main square is this little musem. The stairs leads below the pavement level. All peices are lovely. Lots of ceramic eggs and other beautiful pieces. The artist is very welcoming and very friendly. She was quite inviting and explained her detailed pieces. Really and interesting place to stop in and take a look.

The Kogga gallery is a personality laden, artist run store located in a very lovely building. We loved the idea of the shop more than the ceramics - which we're well made but just not our personal preference. Worth popping in to though.

I found this little studio by chance while shopping for gifts. SO!! much of what is sold in Reykjavik is not made in Iceland and I wanted local work. What a treasure!! The artist was working in her studio and while she was quiet and reserved she helped me pick out just the right thing and happily all made it... More

Kogga is a cosy little studio in the centre of town where you will find exceptional porcelain work highly influenced by local landscape. Meet the artist who exhibits all over the world. Stunning a real gem. Highly recommend a visit.

This shop has a small, but beautiful, display of ceramic work. The glaze and shapes are exquisite, with lots of natural reflections of the Icelandic volcanic landscape in the shapes and glazes. They crackle and have texture and colors in them which are raw and natural as well as refined and beautiful. Lots of smooth shapes. Fun to stop in... More

I visited in 2009 and picked up two lovely bowls. I love the work and hope to return one day. I love the work which really spoke of Iceland to me. I recommend a visit if you collect ceramics or art.
