Silversmith Gregers Holt
Gregers Holt, born in 1960 in Roskilde, educated silversmith from Georg Jensen Silversmithy in 1982.
Born and raised in an active and creative home, his mother a sculptor from Danish Art Academy, Gregers´sence of design and shape was challenged from the very beginning.
Gregers´interest in tableware became instant when he saw the first exhibition of the Silversmith Group in 1976 in Copenhagen. Gregers decided to become a silversmith himself. He wanted to master the noble metal and create beautiful objects which could be used every day - year after year.
In 2006 Gregers and his wife bought the old silversmithy Evald Nielsen..... The goal was (and still is) to re-create fine silverware of the highest quality. Made from old Evald Nielsen drawings and designs. Also new and modern silverware is being produced at the workshop today.
