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 life-long immersions in Icelandic landscapes contribute to her understanding of spatial awareness, formally expressed through material objects.
