Footnotes

  • The images on these pendants are inspired by Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). He was one of the pioneers of Abstract art and taught at the Bauhaus school of Art and Design in Germany. The Bauhaus movement strove to bring creativity and manufacturing together, breaking down all established opinions and paved the way for many of the ideas that have inspired artists in the late 20th century.
