Kapu means bangle in Tamil.
Glass work designer, Prinita Thevarajah uses glass to allude to the childlike qualities inherent in all humans.
Using playful colors and asymmetric shapes across glass jewelry and interior objects,
Thevarajah's style is both eclectic and ephemeral, celebrating the innocence and purity
that often gets lost in this modern world.

Artist's process

I have only just acknowledged that my creative practice up until recently has been purely based out of survival mode. Coming to this realization created a peace I have never experienced before. Working with glass came naturally to me but I did it mostly because I needed to pay rent and people were interested in buying my pieces. Now, there is no more ‘need’ associated with my practice. This understanding allows me
to sink more fully into the flow state that is associated with glass making. It is this
flow state that I come back to constantly. Working with fire and glass is the most
meditative place for me to rest in, and I aim to remain there forever. Kapu means bangle in Tamil. When I started working with glass, I was creating bracelet like pieces. It is a miraculous journey that I have now begun working with jewelry itself.
