De Stijl

Theo van Doesburg founded the Dutch organization de Stijl in 1917, first as a journal. Holland had not felt the effects of modernism as other northern European countries had, and therefore the first strains of pure Dutch abstraction were represented by the work of members of the group. A journal was published roughly every month from 1917 to 1928, and welcomed the ideas of all contemporary European art movements. The journal proselytized a rejection of tradition, and artists began to stress simplification of form and composition. The artists involved in the movement were sculptor Georges Vantongerloo, painter Vilmos Huszár and architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld. Most notable, however, was the participation of Piet Mondrian. De Stijl artists shared an idea about the role of art in society. Designers, architects and artists worked to unify every aspect of visual life in such a way as to imbue contemporary lifestyles with a Utopian-like vision of intellectual harmony. A narrow palette of primary colors, neutrals and simple lines, cubes and rectangles typify the work of de Stijl artists.

This brush has beautiful craftsmanship.
- Anita D in NE Indiana
I don't know why more people don't know about this glue. I made a layered cardboard box over 15 years ago and it is just like the day I made it. No warping, loose edges,its perfect. And the great thing about it, if you haven't used it in a long time and it seems dried out, put some water in the jar, close the lid and come back next day and it's usable. It's one glue that more is not better. Thin it with a little water and cover the surface using an old credit card or brush. I love it for paper or chipboard or cardboard projects.

Metal D-clamp for swivel lamps or other type of swivel arms. Much better than the plastic one. More secure and sturdier. Changed all three of my lamp bases. I use swivel arms for my workbench multi-meters (much heavier than a lamp). Happy with my purchases.Highly recommended.
