Listakonan Fanndís Huld Valdimarsdóttir

rekur verslunina Gallery Flói og flameworking verkstæði í Gömlu Þingborg í Flóahreppi 8 km austan við Selfoss alveg við þjóðveg 1. Þar eru seldir gler og keramik listmunir hannaðir og unnir af Fanndísi og er þetta gert í anda Hagleikssmiðja.

Í versluninni er að finna skartgripi sem gerðir eru úr glerperlum sem framleiddar eru frá grunni á verkstæði inn af versluninni, með aðferð sem kallast flameworking, sú aðferð er einskonar litli bróðir glerblástursins og því hverju orði sannara að um íslenkt hönnunar handverk er að ræða eins og það gerist best í fersku sveita lofti Flóahrepps. Postulín og aðrir keramik munir eru búnir til á verkstæði við heimili Fanndísar.

Mikill áhugi Fanndísar á fornu handverki og siðum varð til þess að hún fór í nám við keramik, glerperlugerð og glerblástur, sem eru með elstu listformunum og er þeim oft blandað saman við efni úr öðrum listsviðum, ásamt því að vinna verkin með aðferðum og tækni líkt og notuð voru fyrr á tímum í bland við nútíma tækni. Gefur þetta af sér skemmtileg karakter einkenni sem stöðugt er hægt að þróa áfram.

  • We stopped a little by chance in this shop, which doesn't have a very nice front, outdoor but the friendly salesperson, with pretty jewelry made by itself! Nice little memory of Selfoss
