The Sea Tureen and The Triton porcelain dinnerware from Royal Copenhagen originated from Griegst’s profound fascination with the sea and was a technical and manufacturing achievement only made possible by Griegst and the team of Royal Copenhagen’s insistence on the impossible becoming possible.
THE FACE SERIES
Created in the beginning of the 1970s, the Face series explores a fascination with metamorphosis in Greek and Roman mythology. Finely detailed gold is transmogrified and illuminated by precious stones, symbolising the complexity of human nature and our place in the natural world."Proportions, emotional expressions, and facial features reflect the creator. Through art we get to meet another person’s soul”, Arje Griegst

THE SPIRA CUTLERY
The Spira cutlery truly resembles no other cutlery and stands out in its bodily and almost spiritual shape, with each handle winding asymmetrically upwards like flower stalks ending in a bud as a green asparagus.
PROTOTYPES OF THE SPIRA CUTLERY
Ever since Arje Griegst made his first sketch of a fruit saving set in 1948, the creation of a cutlery had been on his mind. In the early 1970s, he started yet again to contemplate and experiment with a cutlery, and in 1980 he completed a prototype. The cutlery’s name was Spira (Sprout) - a symbol for growth and creation of life. However, it took another 22 years before the cutlery was finally put into production by Georg Jensen but only for a very short time from 2002-2003.
