Savanna Caravan WEARABLE TREASURES

Rock up, frock up for a fun evening of laughter, champagne and good company.

Savanna’s Wearable Treasures jewellery is extra ordinary. Born in Prague, childhood in Africa, educated in London, Savanna has been on the road all her life. During the decades that she worked as a photojournalist, under her real name Susan Storm, she collected beads, silver and artefacts dating from Roman times to the 19th century. Now she reassembles these ancient, different, unusual, collectible, and beautiful bits and pieces into her Wearable Treasures collection. She renamed herself Savanna in the Moroccan desert, and Caravan because the Silk route is her favourite place. Every piece is unique, every piece tells a story. When you acquire a Savanna Caravan design you’ll become another custodian of a rapidly disappearing culture and history.”

An exhibition of our work in the early 2020s looking back to the momentous period of the 1920s in Modern Art
Much of what we understand about colour comes from the Bauhaus colour theories taught by prominent artists such as Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Josef Albers. They tell us how colours form ‘chords’ and how they communicate with each other in their own language.
In a similar way, Jonny’s work does not intend to capture the world in the manner of a photo camera lens but looks instead to unfold beauty and emotions in the universe of colour.
Philip’s response to the theme is twofold.
He reflects on Cubism as it was carried on into the 1920s. Henri Laurens and Jacques Lipchitz both had met or worked with Picasso and other Cubists.
Common subjects were musicians and their instruments. Lipchitz’ and Laurens’ works were less abstract than those of earlier cubists. The sculptures Lipchitz referred to as his "transparents” included a good deal of negative space.
Philip also responds, by use of 3D block forms, to the shapes and colours of the Bauhaus, in particular those of Paul Klee’s paintings.
