Museum of Design and Applied Art. Iceland is so ceramic - ICELAND IS SO CERAMIC

– a retrospective of Steinunn Marteinsdóttir's works

Steinunn, who lives and works on her art at Hulduhólar in Mosfellsbær, has had a long and prosperous career as ceramicist in Iceland. She is renowned for her elegant yet various contributions to Icelandic ceramic arts. In her first solo-exhibition in 1975 she introduced Icelandic landscape motifs to the ceramic field, with enormous sculptured vases and ceramic wall plaques. Quite unpredictable in her style, her vast body of work bears witness to her indefatigable exploration of techniques and limits, in both material as well as formal language and decoration.



The founding charter of the Museum of Design and Applied Art states that the Museum is to collect and preserve the part of Icelandic cultural history encompassing design, especially from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day. Since its foundation in 1998 the Museum has received regular acquisitions. A large part of the collection comprises gifts, while the Museum also strives to purchase objects of importance in Icelandic design history.
