Our Passion for … Ceramopolis
Our Goal is to create an e-museum for all:
- Islamic (Iznik, Kutahya, Canakkale, Persian)
- Italian (Pre/Post 1600, Urbino, Faenza, Napoli, Pesaro, Apuglia, Cerreto, Savona, Bassano)
- Greek (Skyros, Samos, Attica, Rhodos, ICARO & IKAROS, Mytilini, Creta, Philhellenique, Greek Ceramists)
- French (Nevers, Moustiers, Rouen, Louneville, Patronymique, Revolutionnaire, French Ceramists)
- China (Kraak, Imari)
- Holland (Delft), Spanich, Balkans among others and this is the beginning. Let's fly together..
19. Kutahya Egg – Hanging Ornament with Seraphims
One of the most important Kütahya ceramics of the 16th century (can be found in the London British Museum) is a pitcher that was given as a gift to a monastery in Ankara in 1529 and has an inscription at the bottom in Armenian that says “Made in Kutahya”. The pitcher is further evidence that tiles and ceramics were being made in Kutahya at the same time as they were in Iznik.
