Each piece has been hand crafted so there might be some slight imperfections on the ceramic surface. Quirks and slight colour variations are normal. The presence of kiln marks of 'glaze pops' can sometimes occur on hand made porcelain products. This will not affect the performance of the product.
Turkey has a history of ceramic production reaching back thousands of years, from the primitive sculpture of prehistoric Anatolia to the ornaments and crockery of the Hitites and the ornate hand-painted tiles of Iznik.
WHAT'S SPECIAL IN TURKISH CERAMICS
Due to its rich history of ceramic production, Turkey can be seen as the 'land of ceramics'. These traditions have been coloured by the many different civilizations that have evolved in the Anatolian region. In addition to this cultural history, geography has played an important role. The abundance of natural resources in Anatolia ensures high quality ceramic products and these raw materials are also exported for ceramic production outside Turkey. As well as being a world leader in ceramic production, Turkey has some of the most sophisticated technology and innovative products on the market. Turkish ceramic producers work closely with some of the world's most talented designers in order to create exciting new products that are both beautiful and functional.
ROOTS IN HISTORY
The history of Anatolia can be seen as the history of ceramics. From the Hittites, Romans and Byzantines, to the Seljuqs and Ottomans, ceramics were a crucial aspect of everyday life. The versatility of ceramic as a material meant that techniques evolved and designs flourished to create pieces and products of functionality and ornamental beauty.
