Naja Utzon Popov


Naja Utzon Popov is a talented sculptor, textile designer and ceramicist who is internationally orientated in her work. Based in an East London studio, the artist's work is characterised by a deep fascination for the richness of form and colour in nature.

Throughout her career, Naja has produced a collection of work which is tapped directly from the simplicity of nature. Skilled craftsmanship is the pillar of all her design work and using considered earthly materials is essential to all her sculptural concepts.
