A silversmith who has taken matters in his own hands is Georg Jensen, of Copenhagen. The exhibition of his varied creations at the Art Center reflects a very personal genius and a style which cannot be associated directly with other products of the past or of the present. Jensen's story is that of an artist with a profound creative instinct who grew to receive recognition in the leading art centers of Europe for something that approached s style. Now he has come here to display his most characteristic wares. His work, usually simple, is almost peasant-like in rudeness of contour at times. In his more erectly proportioned pieces we gather a greater feeling for symmetry and grace than in a low tea pot, bowl or butter dish, for instance. In these is emphasized a fullness of proportion that speaks rather for practicability than beauty. The feeling for ornamentation is meager but robust and given to clusterings and bud-like appendages, low relief scrollings and the pure, full lines of leaf formations. In the always bold outlines of Jensen's work is felt the sculpturing touch of the maker's hand. Charming pieces are the stately bowl with flame-turned upright and grape decoration, a set of candelabra, a sheerly-modeled sauce boat and an elevated sugar basin. A set of table cutlery with scarcely a mark of ornament, if relentlessly severe, but artistic withal. The exhibition, which will remain throughout the month, is under the patronage of Mrs. Elihu Root jr., Mrs. John Henry Hammond, Maurice Francis Egan, Mrs. Henry P. Loomis and others.

London's Goldsmiths Honour Danes

Two leading Danish silversmiths, and directors in the Georg Jensen Silversmith firm, Anders Hostrup Pedersen and Jorgen Moller, have been declared "Associate Members Honoris Causa" of the 800 years old British Guild, The Worshipful Company of Goldsmith in London.

It is the first time in the Guild's eight centuries that the doors have been opened for foreign members. Motivating the honour, the Guild emphasized its thanks to the two Danes for the assistance they have given the Guild, and its recognition of the contribution to raising the standards of the art of the silversmith made by Hostrup-Pedersen, and the contribution of Jorgen Moller to jewellery art.

DETROIT

The Society of Arts and Crafts this week is making a fine showing of Italian glass, together with the hand-wrought Danish silver by George Jensen and jewelry by Reginald Pearce. They are all bits of real craftsmanship. Exhibits of this sort are proving a real incentive to many Detroit workmen in precious metals.
