    Artist of the week


    The beautiful porcelain objects designed and handcrafted by Dagny at DayNew are playful and will bring a smile to your face. No wonder, since they are inspired by toys, the circus and the decoration blends geometric lines with colors and some are even sprinkled with gold dust. The functional ceramic objects are perfect as a gift for a loved one - including yourself. Dagný Gylfadóttir is an independent ceramic artist and the name of her company, DayNew, is the direct translation of her Icelandic first name Dagný. She graduated in 2014 with a BA Hons in Contemporary Applied Arts from the University of Cumbria in the U.K. Earlier, she obtained a Diploma in "Mótun/Ceramic shaping" in 2013 from The Reykjavík School of Visual Arts. Dagný is a founding member of Íshúsið, an ancient factory turned into an artist collective in 2014 and became one of the owners of Kaolin Gallery in 2017.
