Photography by Jason B Graham for Idil Yavaş. Idil, the founder and creative driver behind Bakır Istanbul Copperworks, refined her creative drive and business acumen while working for Williams-Sonoma Inc. With the warmth of copper as her inspiration, she followed her entrepreneurial spirit and founded Bakır Istanbul. The hand-crafted treasures at Bakır Istanbul are the manifestation of Idil’s spirit, dreams and hard-work. Today, the beautiful collection can be found in Turkey’s finest restaurants, hotels and homes. I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Idil and her products for press release.
