Travel Pieces – Sif, Dagur
Description

Sif is a ceramic figurine designed by the Icelandic sculptor Örn Porsteinsson. It is part of a series  of figurines inspired by Norse mythology, called the Travel Pieces. In ancient stories, Sif is believed to be the goddess of Earth and to be married to the god of thunder Thor.

 

The figurine’s rounded biomorphic shape and natural colours are reminiscent of the spectacular Icelandic landscape, making it a charming and aesthetically pleasing statement piece. The figurine is handmade in the ceramics studio Cores da Terra in Brazil and is available in five natural colours. Slight differences in size and colour may occur as a natural result of the artisanal manufacturing method.
