Psychedelic Mirror Object 2

Caia’s mesmerising Psychedelic Mirrors are some of her most recognisable pieces. While minimalist in design, they capture the magic of resin by highlighting its uncontrollable reflections. The mirrors provide a new dimension to any space they occupy through their changeable, watery perspectives. 

“The concept came to me while I was still very young. I took my mum’s old vinyl records and melted them to make made sculptures. And the mirrors are made similarly. It’s a very delicate process to keep the shine without creating wrinkles. In the beginning, like everything I do, there were a lot of disasters — but it turned out beautifully.”

Her bespoke pieces err towards the ‘bombastic’, ‘leaning towards what some might consider kitsch’. However, they unanimously convey a unique personality, which has taken the client’s space into account. “I like to create unexpected pieces that are a bit too much. The idea for the mirrors returned to me as an adult because an interior client requested a large piece for his home in a conserved building with restrictions. So I suggested this very modern-looking artwork as a juxtaposition to the feel of the room.”

Caia’s Scandinavian heritage is reflected in her minimalistic shapes, which strive to embody both functionality and aesthetic; “It’s impossible to say whether function or form comes first — it’s a chicken and egg scenario for me. But I aim for them to come together at a higher stage. I'm very aware of functionality regarding products and how they’re used. But they also, of course, have to be very beautiful.”
