Overview

In the centre where Reykjavik’s old heart beats there is a charming red house, once called Aberdeen. There, Kogga, one of Iceland’s most renowned ceramic artists, runs her studio and gallery. The artist warmly welcomes visitors to her gallery that displays unique art pieces hand crafted on the spot. Catch a glimpse of the kiln in the back, it ensures visitors to cool Iceland a very warm welcome indeed!

I wouldn’t really call this a gallery. It’s more of a small shop. That said, I think they had the best ceramics I saw anywhere in Reykjavik. Unfortunately, they had prices to match: You’ll pay about US$1,000 for a large vase or bowl. Still, definitely...More

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...More

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.

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...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.
