RAGNHEIDUR ÖSP SIGURDARDÓTTIR
Ragnheidur Ösp Sigurdardóttir grew up in a small town by the ocean in southwest Iceland. As a child she collected everything, from napkins to erasers to candy in pretty packaging. A show in Reykjavik in 1999 that featured the work of Mark Newson, Jasper Morrison and Michael Young inspired Ragnheidur to create her own precious objects. The Hearth tea lights are Ragnheidur’s first collaboration with Middle Kingdom and her inaugural foray into ceramics.
