”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

The fascinating thing about Arje's work, was his remarkable preoccupation with the materiels, he spent relentless months experimenting to achieve a harmony between the gold and the stones. He made aesthetic demands.

"Drops in the glazes, twinkling, ocean-like,
and beneath them is the golden light"
- a poem written in the Danish newspaper Politiken referring to Arje's porcelain series. The candlestick Spiral that stands beautifully in front was created parallel with the Spiral rings and bracelets.
