Listvinahúsið (the House of Artist Patrons) was founded as early as 1927 by Guðmundur Einarsson from Miðdalur, making it the oldest workshop in Iceland, and it's been located in its current location since as far back as 1964. Einar Guðmundsson, the son of Guðmundur, took over the workshop in 1955, and has put his own, more modern, spin on things. In 2004, Einar's son, Guðmundur, bought the workshop, after running it with his father for many years. They both still work there, continuing on the legacy of their family by creating their unique hand-crafted ceramics .
You can see all different kinds of ceramics at Listvinahúsið, including Vikings, owls, vases, bowls, necklases, candlesticks, boxes and mugs, to name a few. They are all hand-crafted with great care and work. Every detail is thoroughly considered and every piece is the result of a great deal of ambition and care on the part of the craftsmen.
