Biography:
Just Andersen was a Danish decorative sculptor and silversmith. He is best known for his candlesticks, vases and figurines in pewter, brass, copper and Disko, an alloy Andersen invented by combining lead and antimony. Born on 13 July 1884 in Godhavn, Greenland, Andersen studied at the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen before attending the Danish Crafts School under Jens Møller-Jensen in 1912. On completing his studies, he designed works for Georg Jensen and, in 1918, opened his own silversmithing business, Just Andersen Pewter. Andersen died on 11 December 1943 in Glostrup, Denmark. His works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the National Museum in Stockholm, among others.
