Product Information

Classical İznik ceramic pomegranate with tulip and flower patterns was specially designed and hand made by Zeynep Tişkaya. Tulip and pomegranate patterns were used on the bowl. The red dye used was obtained by traditional techniques and doe not contain chemical features. It is believed that pomegranate brings in plenitude and richness. The wall screen of Rüstem Paşa Mosque in 16th century appears with different patterns of these kind.

Material: it consists of porcelain mud, quartz which is a semi-precious mineral (80*85%) and a mixture of clay and glaze. the mud obtained from this mixture is given certain shapes. These forms shaped are fired in 1000-1040 degrees and become ready for dying. The patterns are dyed by means of "sıraltı" technique and placed in the oven for the second time after being vitrified. With the effect of the high temperature, the glaze melts and transforms into glass.

Large: height 10, diameter 11 cm.
