    After seeing a couple other posts of Icelandic pottery, I thought I would post the piece that I have. I found this piece a while ago for $4. It is marked on bottom Funi Sian. Not sure about age or much else. Any info appreciated. Thank you for looking

      “Glit is a ceramic studio founded by Ragnar Kjartansson (1923-1988).

      Ragnar studied under Guthmundur fra Mithdal (1895-1963) an Icelandic artist and Asmundi Sveinssyni, a sculptor. Later Ragnar opened his first ceramic studio, Funi Keramik, in 1947.

      The pottery first housed in the old downtown at 13 Odinsgata street, Reykjavík, Iceland. The first equipment and the ovens were built by Ragnar Kjartansson, who was the driving force behind the product development and design of the company. He was a member of the Icelandic Sculptors Society which he established in the Icelandic capital in 1972 along with Hallsteinn Siguryhsson, Jon Gunnar Arnason, Porbjörg Palsdottir and others.”

      Keep it away from any any glass or pottery you have. The lava pieces are very sharp and will scratch glass easily.

      Vetraio, thank you so much for that info on this pottery. This is the only piece I have from Iceland and didn’t know too much about it. It is rather unusual and very sharp!
