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!

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.
