Per Lütken was the artistic director for Holmegaard and his tasks included the design of art glass and tableware. When I first started to getting to know his work I was pretty impressed by his designs of jugs and decanters in the 1950s, most of them in the lovely shade of gray with a hint of green so typical from Holmegaard, and from these I have always loved the unique handles all of these jugs share.
In this pic you can see one Roskilde jug (from 1958), three Martini jugs (the complete set that I never though I could complete, from 1957), two Havfrue -Mermaid- jugs (also the complete set, from 1958), two Island -Iceland- jugs (two out of a set of four, from 1954) and two Baltika jugs (two out of a set of three, from 1956).
The pic can be a little bit of a puzzle, sort of "find the 10 jugs and win...", but I quite like it... a little bit of chaos can be really stimulating from time to time ;) In any case, it is doble the size of the pics i usually upload, so you can enjoy it better!
