Kaja Upelj

Glass fuser

Kaja Upelj is a Slovenian glass artist living and working in London. She creates works in glass that explore phenomena of colour and light. During her Master's studies at the Royal College of Art, Kaja developed a technique of creating iridescent colours through the chemical reactions within glass. She has won numerous scholarships and awards, including being named a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust Scholar in the UK and one of the global emerging young talents at New Horizons 2018 in China. She has exhibited internationally, showing at art fairs such as Collect in London, Miart and Milan Design Week in Milan as well as Nomad Circle in various cities. Kaja was first captured by the beauty of glass on the streets of Murano, and ever since then she has been on a mission to draw people to the emotional power of glass as a soft, warm and welcoming material.
