Anja Kjær graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 1983. She has been creating unique glass designs as an independent artist for 25 years. A sure sense of strong, joyful colours and classic lines provide the special Anja Kjær touch which means that her creations are known and loved far beyond Denmark’s borders.
Her portfolio is large and is made up of works from her 18 years as a designer with Holmegaard as well as from a wide range of international exhibitions. Anja Kjær’s designs are represented in permanent exhibitions in museums from Copenhagen to New York.
For Holmegaard, Anja Kjær has created the Karen Blixen range, which includes vases, flower pot covers and tealight holders – and all combine an international outlook with Danish traditions of craftsmanship. The inspiration for this range comes from the golden neck rings of African women and expressive images from Karen Blixen’s Africa.
