Silversmith Georg Jensen, A Tale of Danish Silver
Georg Jensen was born on 31 August 1866 in the small rural factory town of Radvad, north of Copenhagen surrounded by the beauties of nature. A small marsh was filled with blue clay, to which Georg Jensen as a child began to play and experiment, turning his visions of nature into small figures. The local bricklayers would encourage the young sculptor and praise his works, and his father, Jorgen Jensen, cultivated his instincts to understand nature for it beauty. Georg Jensen died in 1935 and has been hailed as one of “the greatest craftsmen in silver for the last 300 years” who crafted “antiques for the future”, statements which reflected a lifetime of hard work and talent.
