Innately influenced by the wealth of nature around her during her younger years, Naja’s style embraces encounters with nature which have been translated into a collection of sculptures, ceramics, glassware and textiles. Naja’s approach has brought her great success and her designs have been well received in New York at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), where she exhibited a large-scale clay installation that was purchased by the iconic Saks Fifth Avenue department store.

Her glass and ceramic designs appear all over the world, including at the Feng Sushi restaurant chain in London and galleries, such as the Galeria Kunstmann in Malaga.
