Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

‘Ice’ is an exquisite new range of rugs inspired by Naja’s extensive travels to Greenland’s vast inland ice plains. With vibrant colour transformations and crystalline forms, the patterns of ice crystals have been translated into a collection of rugs with bold designs, lush textures and vibrant colours.
Brightly and boldly graphic, the carpets’ originality comes from their reflection of the hexagonal symmetry and uniqueness inherent in nature’s pure snowflake form. The design theme, which runs through the seven different patterns in the range, defies the elusiveness and transience of snowflakes by capturing their beauty in functional artworks that can be treasured for generations.
The ‘Ice’ range is designed to suit both traditional and modern interiors, and are extremely durable as well as luxurious in feel. The rugs can be fully customized to suit size and colour requirements of interiors.

Artist Profile

Born: 1973

Hometown: Copenhagen

Based in: Copenhagen

Danish/Australian sculptor, textile designer and ceramicist Naja Utzon Popov was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1973 into a family of artists. She inherited her creative genes from her grandfather, Jørn Utzon, a Danish architect known for designing the iconic Sydney Opera House in Australia; her mother, prominent Danish artist Lin Utzon; and her father, acclaimed Australian architect Alex Popov.

Naja’s childhood years in Denmark have always been an important source of inspiration for her work, as were the years she spent in Australia studying drawing, painting and etching at the Julian Ashton Art School. After moving to England, Naja continued her formal artistic training with a BA in Ceramics at the University of Westminster School of Media and Design. Today, she lives in her native Denmark and works out of her studio in central Copenhagen.
Najas influences from nature and her travels find expression in her work, where she translates her encounters with nature into textiles, glassware, ceramics and sculptures. By adding her own personal touch to works that beautifully combine contemporary design with Mother Nature’s gifts, Naja carries on the family tradition of creating outstanding art.

Naja has created gravity-defying clay sculptures for the Rosendahl A/S corporate headquarters in Copenhagen and a presentation sculpture was commissioned by the Institute of Architects in Barcelona in honour of architect Saenz de Oiza. A monumental outdoor sculpture entitled 'Gathering', which rises from the ground like ancient columns formed from Welsh slate, was commissioned for the corporate collection of the Danish organisation, Humana. One of her more recent project of a sculpture installation was for art collectors Sheela & Ivan Levys new restaurant in Palma de Mallorca, Fera Restaurant. Other sculptures and installations have been purchased by the likes of Saks Fifth Avenue, Bodegas Ribas vineyard in Spain, Lovell Chen Architects and the new hospital wing in Copenhagens Royal hospital designed by 3xN Architects, to name but a few.
Bespoke retail design projects include an exquisite line of glassware for Zone A/S, sushi dinner service for UK sushi chain Feng Sushi and two exclusive ranges of high-quality floor rugs commissioned by the specialist retailer, Carl Hansen & Son in Denmark, as well as an outdoor rug series made from recycled plastic for Swedish rug company Triton Rugs. Naja has worked directly with architects and interior designers to create unique and site-specific artworks, murals and floor art in the form of rugs.
