Fine Art and Design
Gallery Dunga’s Gallery and Ceramic Studio is at the Old Harbour
Design and handicraft has always been part of the Icelandic women’s daily life. Over the centuries, they have had to use their creativity to make clothes and jewellery, decorations and practical knickknacks from scratch, working with the material provided by Icelandic nature and farming. Thus, the tradition goes way back and today it is stronger than ever. Gallery Dunga, next door to the Seabaron Restaurant by the old harbour, is an excellent example of the ingenuity of Icelandic women when it comes to design and creativity. The gallery sells bags and belts made from fish-leather, lovely feminine clothes from Evuklæði (Eve’s Clothing), exquisite ceramic and glassware, oil and acrylic paintings and has an absolutely new take on Icelandic wool. Owner Ingibjörg Klemenz works in her own workshop on the premises.
All the designers aim to use mostly Icelandic material in their work, thus creating quite unconventional pieces. Thus, a visit to Gallery Dunga is a must when in Reykjavik.
