Iznik tiles are a type of ceramic tile that has been used in architectural applications for private residences since the late 15th century. These tiles are known for their beautiful and intricate designs and patterns, which often feature blue and white floral or geometric motifs. The tiles are traditionally found in mosques and other religious buildings, but can also be used to add color and character to private residences. Iznik tiles are also known for their durability and can withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions, making them an ideal choice for outdoor applications. They can be used to create stunning mosaics for walls, floors, and countertops, and can be used to add a unique touch to bathrooms, kitchens, and other living spaces. In addition, Iznik tiles can be used to create decorative accents around fireplaces, windows, and doorways.

Revival of Iznik Pottery

Named after the town in western Anatolia where it was first made popular, Iznik pottery is revival of the vividly painted ceramics and tiles of the Ottoman Empire. The intricate decorations on the hand painted ceramics progressed from pure symmetry to subtle rhytmes, incorporating ships, animals, trees, carnations, roses and of course, lots of tulips.

Mehmet Gursoy is a leading figure in the revival of Iznik Pottery. For 30 years, Gursoy has been studying and producing iznik art and ceramics, working to truly rediscover the secrets of clay and unique colors of Iznik Pottery. His work is displayed in Turkish missions overseas, in private collections and in various museums, incuding the Museum of Anatolian Civilazitions in Ankara and the Smithsonian's Sackler Gallery of Asian Art in Washington, D.C.
