Travel Pieces – Sif, Dagur
About the collection
Örn Porsteinsson is an Icelandic sculptor, based in Reykjavík who is primarily known for his monumental work that is on display at several public spaces in Iceland. For Gardeco however, Örn has designed a beautiful line of small sculptures, named the Travel Pieces. The artist initially carves his designs from disposable materials that are later on translated into ceramics and bronze by Gardeco. Porsteinsson’s sculptures have rounded biomorphic shapes that reminisce of the spectacular Icelandic landscape. The artist is also inspired by Icelandic mythology, which is why each of his designs carries the name of a Norse God.
