Ib Just Andersen (1884-1943) Danish sculptor and silversmith, started his own workshop in 1918.
He is best known for his Scandinavian neoclassical design articles for everyday use in pewter, brass, copper, bronze and Disko. Disko metal was his own invention (named after the Disko bay in Greenland, where he grew up) and it is an alloy of lead, pewter and antimony.
During the mid-1920s and early 1930s, Just Andersen worked for Nordiska Kompaniet and Guldsmedsaktiebolaget in Stockholm. Just Andersen is probably the most widely known designer of modern pewter in Denmark. He had his own showrooms in Berlin, London, New York and Los Angeles. In 1934 he designed flatware for Georg Jensen.
