Bauhaus inspired colour wheel earrings
Solid brass drop earrings inspired by Johannes Itten’s colour wheel. Itten taught at the Bauhaus from 1919 to 1920. His works exploring the use and composition of colour resemble the square op art canvases of artists such as Josef Albers, Max Bill and Bridget Riley, and the expressionist works of Wassily Kandinsky.
Ear wires are hypoallergenic. Designed by David Howell & Company to pay tribute to this artist tool, these earrings are a fun accessory and the perfect gift for artists who love colour.
Finish: Solid brass, electro-plated with non-tarnishing silver finish, giclee print, domed, ear wires are hypo allergenic.
Johannes Itten (11 November 1888 – 25 March 1967) was a Swiss expressionist painter, designer, teacher, writer and theorist associated with the Bauhaus (Staatliches Bauhaus) school.
Commonly known as the Bauhaus was a German art school operational from 1919 to 1933 that combined crafts and the fine arts. The school became famous for its approach to design, which attempted to unify the principles of mass production with individual artistic vision and strove to combine aesthetics with everyday function.
