Product Information

Iznik / Nicaea ceramic vase is based on an early 15th century find from the Sultanahmet Jail Excavations. White, turquoise, blue colored vase is adorned with flowers, leaves and branches in Antioch fashion on the neck and shoulder and Arabic calligraphy on the body.

Material: it is composed of china mud, semi precious stone quartz (80*85%) and a mixture of clay and lustre. Various forms are given to this mixture by means of different techniques. These forms are fired in 1000 – 1040 degrees centigrade and are prepared for dying. The patterns are dyed by means of “sıraltı” technique, lustred and are fired for the second time. With the effect of high temperature, the lustre melts and turns into a transparent glass-like substance.
Hand-wash is recommended.
Dimensions: height 17 cm, diameter 16 cm.
