HISTORY
The work of Arje Griegst
The Danish goldsmith Arje Griegst is considered to be one of the worlds finest and most original. His works bear the mark of a wealth of fantasy and form. His technical ability is unsurpassable. He works the gold, giving the surface an organic, varied expression, another dimension in which gold threads convey life to the material.

Arje Griegst, who was born in 1938, employs in his work a partiality for seldom used stones oriental pearls. He received his education at Copenhagen's Academy of Arts and Crafts, and has taught at the Academy of Arts and Crafts in Jerusalem. In recent years he has done several beautiful works for the Queen of Denmark. In addition to his work in gold, Arje Griegst is also known for his famous seashell inspired Triton porcelain, designed for the Royal Porcelain Factory, his glasses for Holmegaard Glass as well as the gilded Coral Water Fountain in Tivoli.
