    Soren Georg Jensen (1917 - 1982) was the fifth of Georg Jensen’s six children, and his third son. He was apprenticed at the Georg Jensen Silversmithy from 1931 through 1936, achieving the rank of journeyman. Later on, he received training as a sculptor, principally at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Sculpture, Copenhagen, from 1941 to 1945. His sculpture was first exhibited in 1944, at Charlottenborg Spring Exhibition, Charlottenborg, Denmark. In 1949, after a year of study in Paris, he returned to the Georg Jensen Silversmithy. He became the firm’s first artistic director in 1962, taking over from his uncle, Harold Nielsen. Jensen held the position until 1974. 

    Jensen’s sculpture is abstract, substantial, and arresting. Often made of granite, the pieces are characterised by chunky forms, multifaceted, sharp-edged surfaces that throw interesting shadows and effective use of negative space. It is no surprise that he brought a finely tuned sense of form to his design work for the Jensen Silversmithy, along with a keen understanding of the interrelationship of craftsmanship and artistic vision.

    Soren Georg Jensen’s sculpture and silver designs have been exhibited internationally. His many awards include a gold medal at the Milan Triennale (1960), the Eckersberg Medal (1966), and the Thorvaldsen Medal (1974).
