Carpets by Naja Utzon Popov

When I was in London for the first-ever Blog Tour, I had the pleasure to meet the incredibly talented Naja Utzon Popov. Naja weaves carpets and I saw this one in person at Tent London.

The shapes in this carpet remind me of a centipede but only slightly. Her work's not the least but unsettling but still, there's something insect-like about these designs. Few forms of life are as beautifully designed as a centipede so my likening her carpets to one is meant as a compliment.

When she's not invoking centipedes she playing with snow crystals and when's not doing that she's sculpting or designing other household objects. Whatever else goes on in the design wold, Naja Utzon Popov is clearly a woman to watch.
