Alber’s Inspired Hand Painting 3

In the spirit of modernist Venetian glass design ,we bring you a vase project to bring in the Spring. This delightful collage project uses only a few supplies and containers.

The use of translucent colored tissue paper gives the effect of beautiful art glass. We love those little glass bottles that fruit juices sometimes come in and rather than sending them to the recycle bin we decided to turn them into festive flower containers. This is one of those projects that can be expanded into a major party decorating idea.

We have created a painting concept that utilizes the idea of simple color investigation using unusual materials (colored sand and glitter) as well as an abstract composition. It was really satisfying to see this painting emerge from the process and it It made us wonder what a whole series might look like.

Albers enrolled as a student in the preliminary course (Vorkurs) of Johannes Itten at the Weimar Bauhaus in 1920. Although Albers had studied painting, it was as a maker of stained glass that he joined the faculty of the Bauhaus in 1922, approaching his chosen medium as a component of architecture and as a stand-alone art form. The director and founder of the Bauhaus, Walter Gropius, asked him in 1923 to teach in the preliminary course ‘Werklehre' of the department of design to introduce newcomers to the principles of handicrafts, because Albers came from that background and had appropriate practice and knowledge.

In 1925, Albers was promoted to professor, the year the Bauhaus moved to Dessau. At this time, he married Anni Albers (née Fleischmann) who was a student there. His work in Dessau included designing furniture and working with glass. As a younger art teacher, he was teaching at the Bauhaus among artists who included Oskar Schlemmer, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee. The so-called form master, Klee taught the formal aspects in the glass workshops where Albers was the crafts master; they cooperated for several years.
