What is De Stijl?

De Stijl, meaning Style, was a group of Dutch artists who created abstract art which adhered to vertical and horizontal geometry. The group was founded by Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. Mondrian left De Stijl when Van Doesburg began using diagonal geometry.

Glass

Glass is a transparent solid. It varies in composition based on the type of glass. Artists use these variants to create art glass, including stained, blown, and a myriad of decorated forms. Glass can be cut, textured, surfaced with overlays, and engraved.

Sand

Sand is loose grains of material primarily made of quartz, mica, feldspar and other minerals and rocks. Sand paintings are made by pouring colored sands into designs; often for cultural rituals and special celebrations. The designs take many days to complete, and finally brushed away.

Bronze

Bronze is a metal alloy which is made of copper and tin. Most modern compositions include 88% copper and 12% tin. Bronze eventually develops a patina, or surface color, that is a deep green. Large bronze objects are made in foundries.
