The art of Turkish tiles and ceramics occupies a place of prominence in the history of Islamic art. Its roots can be traced at least as far back as the Uighurs of the 8th and 9th centuries.The art of Turkish tile and ceramic-making developed over the centuries incorporating many different techniques and styles.
Enriched by the arrival of the Seljuks, the ceramic industry in Anatolia achieved a deservedly worldwide reputation with the support of the Ottoman court. Today,
Kutahya has been revived as an important center of tile and ceramic-making. In addition, efforts are also being made in private workshops and educational institutions in Iznik, Istanbul, and Bursa to keep the art of traditional Turkish tiles and ceramics alive and develop it so that it can address the demands of modern-day life.
Kutahya was the most famous sanctuary for the pottery artisans who were Turkish, Greek & Genovese of the medieval times.
It was a place hidden inland from thedisturbance of time. The art there took a different turn with the idea that “all comes from with the same source” which one can see in the arrangement of the patterns and flowers.
