Kaja creates unique works of colour and light dance inside the sensual nature of glass. She captures a softness by freezing organic movement and lines choreographed into subliminal form. And in that way, her art is allowed to remove themselves from being definite, and possesses life of their own embodying a sense of warmth and wealth of emotions that arise from the working process. The matter of utmost importance for Kaja’s creative work is to alter the perception of glass as being sturdy and cold. She is constantly searching for ways to capture and convey the material in its most fundamental and the impression of fluidity. Kaja’s work is tactile and welcomes interaction from the audience, inviting both familiarity and personal connection.

Kaja Upelj is a Slovenian artist living and working in London. Although she uses glass as her main material to tell poetic stories, she researches other emerging materials as well, such as metals and wood. For her, designing with glass is an advanture because its dimensions are vast and full of discoveries. She began her journey in 2012 in Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, where she finished her BA. In 2018 Kaja achieved a master’s degree in Ceramics and Glass at Royal College of Art. Her artwork expresses her and her achievement of the material.
