A journey through Iceland reveals natural, primordial materials: hand-spun wool, horsehair, horn, reindeer antler, lava stone and driftwood. Hand- crafted objects- each unique in the world- are made-to-order by Iceland's foremost artists and artisans. Starkness, restraint and strength of design reflect the stunning raw landscapes of the country- at once ancient and yet utterly modern.

Hand Hammered Copper Votive

Sveinn Markússon was raised as a 4th generation metal worker- his great grandfather founded a metalwork firm in Iceland in 1922. Sveinn started apprenticing at age 12 and today has his own workshop and gallery in Reykjavik.


Sveinn hand-hammers pure copper into magical votives which reflect light in the form of a glowing heart. A perfect gift for a favorite friend.
