GRIMM'S mini colour circle spiral
is on back order
The Colour Circle Spiral is a play on Goethe's Colour Wheel, which famously sets out his understanding of optics:
"When the eye sees a colour it is immediately excited and it is its nature, spontaneously and of necessity, at once to produce another, which with the original colour, comprehends the whole chromatic scale." — Goethe, Theory of Colours
The colours diametrically opposed to each other in the Wheel are those which reciprocally evoke each other in the eye - Yellow x Violet, Orange x Blue, Red x Green etc.
Theories aside, the Colour Circle Spiral provides many hours of quiet enjoyment as your child pieces together visual treats.
This mini-game are intended as a table game for older children and adults.
It is not based on making only one image, but endless variations. The colourful pieces lead the way, unleashing your imagination.
The beauty of these creative puzzles is that the fun never ends. Keep dreaming, and something new comes up.
Inspired by the educational philosophies of Rudolf Steiner, Grimm’s is about the rainbow, happy colours, creativity, and imagination. Lovingly hand-finished with non-toxic and water-based stains (unvarnished) by a specialist team in Germany, the puzzles, building sets, and toys are gorgeous, and also work as décor pieces for a beautiful home. We love it because there are no instructions, and you can do no wrong with a Grimm’s toy.
Just play, learn, and enjoy!
Tip: So that the created images and mandalas bring pleasure for a longer time, take a tablet and lay a felt on it. The felt provides a non-slip surface so pieces can be placed easily and more precisely. Created pictures can easily be put away if space on the table or floor is needed for something else. Or the designs can function as décor and art which can be admired over a longer period on a table, sideboard or racks.
Materials: birch or poplar plywood, non-toxic water-based colour stain/non-toxic plant-based oil finish.
Size: diameter 21cm, puzzle pieces 0.7cm thickness
