Thorvald Bindesboll and the Silversmiths
by Poul Dedenroth-Schou
Overall Thorvald Bindesboll was extremely productive in his creation of varying designs and illustrations, however in these earlier days, he seemed to have little interest in the execution of the design, only concerned with creating his fantastical illustrations. Also, Bindesboll himself was never a silversmith, and relied on the craftsmen who executed his designs to interpret how his forms would be rendered in the finished pieces. In many ways, he himself was learning how silver displayed his designs, and overall he had yet to define his own unique style, and as such a few of his works still bore the same very naturalistic feel of the silversmithy, as well as pulling still from more classical designs In some cases, these leaf shaped motifs would appear on the same items as his more free form geometric or cloud like designs, and later on, some of these would make a reappearance, redesigned and in a more finished style with Holger Kyster. Overall, the variation in design at this time was great, ranging from elegant and graceful to dense and unwieldly.
