About Kaya

Kaya Deckelbaum is a figurative sculptor.

Her major medium is wire-mesh that

is transformed into very expressive, 

distinct and varied art forms.


Kaya’s sculpture comprises the breadth 

of human moods, interactions,

and spiritual themes. The transparency

and shadows associated with her art add another dimension to the multi-faceted

impressions are seen in her novel creations.


To this end, Kaya presents individual,

or groups of faces, and full body sculptures which stand alone, or are shown with other media such as driftwood or cloth. A novel

lighting approach produces strong

and exciting shadow forms, synergistic

to the original figures.
