Description

Nature is full of irresistible forms. Some of them we can observe on a daily base while others are more hidden. In this case the form is an accurate cast of a whale tooth. A cultural connection to my childhood in Iceland when whale teeth where a common sight. By reproducing the tooth in aluminium two of Iceland’s most persistent political disputes – whale hunting and aluminum smelters – merge into an object. However Catch is first and foremost an ode to nature’s abundance of beauty. It is handmade in a small family business in Iceland, where 3rd generation of experts keep on mastering the age-old method of sand casting. It is a fascinating method, where red hot metal is poured into sand molds. A time consuming process, which requires a great deal of craftsmanship.

Her work has been widely exhibited internationally. Currently she is a professor at Iceland University of the Arts. Through everyday objects and design research Tinna reflects on the environment whether it be domestic or the natural. She puts material and technology into unexpected circumstances generating a different perspective, an expanded experience, a twisted context. Her life-long immersions in Icelandic landscapes contribute to her understanding of spatial awareness, formally expressed through material objects.
