Created in the early seventies, Arje Griegst turned gold into quivering and ribbed lines. At once organic and stylized, the Spiral collection is hypnotic in its fluidity and warm glow, like locks of golden hair.
18K yellow gold ring
Made in Denmark
”In the master’s hand the gold comes alive for the marvellous material it is. No one can get the gold to speak like Arje Griegst. Not merely that it always glitters, but gold as a marvellous malleable material with many hues; soft, warm and organic.” – The Bank of Denmark Jubilee Foundation’s Honorary Grant, 1999
SEA TUREEN & SPIRAL LADLE, 1974
BOUGHT AND OWNED BY THE NATIONALMUSEUM IN STOCKHOLM.
Modelled in clay, then formed in plaster and finally fired in porcelain. Sprayed with six different glazes in blue and green tones. The Spiral soup ladle is constructed in gilded silver using the same cire perdue technique as the Spiral jewellery.
SPIRAL BRACELET NO. 10, 18K GOLD.
What fascinated Arje was the metal’s capacity to reflect light, keep its lustre and make jewels glow. The Spiral series reveals his ability to depict essentially different expressions and the design moves as if along a natural trail.
SPIRAL RING NO. 6, 18K GOLD.
Gold that bewitches, gold as light.
