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!

By the way, more info about Per Lütken can be found at (see working link in comments)

I hope you will enjoy it

    Thanks guys! I now see I should have displeyed them differently... the one on the left should be on the right and viceversa... the poor 2 litres Baltica is almost invisible! :) (plus both Baltica jugs would be together then... I guess I will take another picture and post it here soon!

    But anyway, I love the effect of the 10 handles, which is the thing one sees the most!

    Thanks Amber and Inky. Carlos says I can do something really artistic with this glass photos and that I should work seriousy in this "many glass layers" thing... mmmm, maybe I will ;)

    Carlos' offer is too good to pass up!
    It could be like window dressing!

    By the way: There must be a way to make the links active. Try to click "enter" after copying in the link. Like that it's easier for the users - and better for the search engines. And what a picture, you're an artist.
