The art of Turkish tiles and ceramics have a very important in the history of Islamic art. Its roots can be traced at least as far back as the Uighurs of the 8th and 9th centuries. Çini-making (Çinicilik) means the craftsmanship shaped around traditional Turkish art of çini for the centuries with its own unique production and adornment techniques.
In çini adornments generally geometric shapes, plants and animal figures symbolizing cosmic thoughts and beliefs are used in different colours. Using red, cobalt blue, turquoise and green on white or navy blue background is the characteristic feature of traditional çinis.
The basic element that characterizes and safeguards the art of çini is traditional craftsmanship manifested in the applications and the knowledge transmitted to next generations about the supply of the raw material, preparation of dyes, production and usage of the tools, firing processes, adornment techniques and aesthetics.
We are deeply grateful to work with such talented artists who are uniting their knowledge & heArt for the higher good..
