Inga Elín has been making her art for over 48 years, becoming one of the leading ceramic artists in Iceland. In her early years she studied at Skolen for Brugskunst in Denmark and received an award for her work there by the Queen Margrethe in 1988. Since then she has devoted her life to mostly ceramics and has sought her influence to the vast nature of her home country broadening her collection as the years go by.
She has been working closely with many restaurants and has made dinnerware for the Icelandic Culinary Team as well. The trophy for the Icelandic Music Awards has been made by her the last 18 years and is one of many trophies she makes. All of her designs are handmade and hand-painted.
