My cards has arrived

Dare 2019

My dear Timucin Ipek not only has designed these cards for my new project DARE, but also had them printed and reached to me all the way from Ankara. If you need a good and quick graphic designer, let me know.

For my last project's cards, check this post: Reflections 2015

From a Different Angle

I won't be able to put these beauties in the exhibition since there are some glaze defects occurred in the kiln I didn't intend. Therefore, they took their places in my rejected work shelf. I admit that there are quite many on that shelf as all ceramists know from hard experience. 

While taking photos, I realised that the light plays so wonderfully with these shiny bronze coloured glaze so I wanted to post them here. Aren't they beautiful from a different angle? Flying?

Grogged stoneware, hand built, glazed, high fired to 1240ºC
For the last two years, with this new work in mind, I have been thinking hard about some words. Dialogue is one of them. An important one. A possibility of a dialogue, suggesting an interaction, a shy invitation for a conversation...

Tribute to my Alma Mater

Well, I was trained as a civil engineer in probably one of the best technical universities, Orta Dogu Teknik Universitesi (Middle East Technical University) which happened to be in a wonderful campus designed in a brutalist architectural style in the 50s in Ankara. 

So I may say, being in love with concrete is in my veins. These pieces you see here are actually clay not concrete but I love them all the more because of their exposed concrete appearance and feeling. They are so simple in their unpretentious honesty yet powerful!

Black and White

These are the very first pieces in black stoneware which I applied porcelain slip over and play with the surfaces. I love the contrast between these two very different clay bodies and their interactions. 
Sometimes stoneware body rejects the porcelain, so fissures and cracks appear. Other times, they have a better connection, a natural looking bonding occurs. Each piece has become a unique being after this exchange which is than again tested and changed with high fire (around 1240-1280ºC in an electrical kiln).
