Jorgen Jensen [Kopenhagen 1895 – 1966], danish silversmith. As the second son of Georg Arthur Jensen he also became a silversmith. He studied in Munic under the goldsmith Leonhard Ebert and also at the Städtische Kunstgewerbeschule. After returning to Copenhagen he worked for the Georg Jensen Company since he opened his own workshop at Stockholm in 1923. He returned to Georg Jensen in 1936 as a designer. (Jensen, Jorgen)

GEORG JENSEN 1866-1935, The danish silversmith
Georg Jensen was born in 1866. He apprenticed as a goldsmith and then studied at the Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen, from which he graduated in 1892 as a sculptor.
To augment his income, he worked as a journeyman for the Danish silversmith Mogens Ballin. This period proved to be fateful, for it is here that he made his decision to work in silver. After initial successes at exhibitions, he opened his own workshop in Bredgade 36, Copenhagen in 1904 where he made jewelry, hollowware, and flatware. – Blossom pattern Tea Pot #2, Blossom pattern silver cutlery #84 – His method of working with silver was to make Jensen a pioneer of the art in the 20th century. He did not polish the silver, but preferred a matt finish with visible hammer blows. – 1906 CONTINENTAL pattern Silver cutlery – He also had a strong sense of form. Jensen decorated his pieces with stylized flowers or lush grapes The GRAPE pattern silver bowl #263 – often using fruit as a motif for his jewelry – and preferred stones such as green agate, blue lapis lazuli, amber or malachit. His goal was to unite beauty and practicality in his pieces. He soon enjoyed widespread recognition as a silversmith and became known beyond Denmark’s borders. Many talented artists worked under Jensen’s tutelage, including Johan Rohde – ACORN KINGS KÖNIG pattern silver cutlery – , who had no small part in the success of Jensen’s silver workshop. HARALD NIELSEN PYRAMID pattern SILVER CUTLERY & Holloware – , whose works were closest to those of Jensen, is another as well as OTTO GUNDLACH PETERSEN CACTUS pattern SILVER CUTLERY – or after World War II, the sculptor Henning Koppel CARAVEL pattern SILVER CUTLERY.Georg Jensen died in 1935; his silver workshop however lived on, as Jensen was able to pass his business on to capable colleagues during his lifetime.Hollowware: ANTIK, BERNADOTTE, CARAVEL, CYPRESS, DOBBELRIFLET, KAKTUS, KÖNIG, KÖNIGIN, KUGEL, MAGNOLIA, PYRAMIDE, RELIEF
