Iznik Pottery Art
Aydın Savukduran, the founder of Iznik Pottery Art, started working in the world famous Grand Bazaar as a child. To earn extra money for his family, he would take odd jobs from the local shop owners. While not working, Aydın would admire the delicate blue and white hand-painted Iznik ceramics. Iznik ceramics have a rich heritage in Turkish culture that dates back hundreds of years. In fact, Istanbul’s Blue Mosque takes it’s name from the thousands of Iznik tiles that line it’s interior. Today, Aydın and his family continue to promote Turkish craftsmanship and the Iznik tradition by working with cooperatives to produce these Turkish treasures. Iznik Pottery Art is located in the heart of the world famous Grand Bazaar.
Iznik Pottery Art is located in Istanbul’s famous Grand Bazaar. Istanbul, once known as Constantinople, is the only city in the world to straddle two continents: Europe and Asia. Over the last 2000 years, it has also been the capital of three empires: Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman. Divided by the Bosphorus Strait, today Istanbul is home to over 15 million residents. Istanbul is a study of contrast: ancient and modern; conservative and progressive; chaotic and relaxed. With a rich history and warm culture, it is one of the most inspiring cities in the world.
