Just Andersen was a Danish decorative sculptor and silversmith. He is best known for
his candleholders, vases, and figurines using pewter, brass, copper, and Disko, an
alloy Andersen invented by combining lead and antimony. Born on July 13, 1884 in
Godhavn, Greenland, Andersen studied at the Royal Academy of Art in Copenhagen
before attending the School of Danish Crafts under Jens Møller-Jensen in 1912.
Upon finishing school, he designed works for Georg Jensen and in 1918 opened his
own silversmith company, Just Andersen Pewter. Andersen died on December 11, 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.
Just Andersen had his own show rooms in Berlin, London, New York and Los Angeles.
