We define a mosaic as a picture made up of different colored particles lying on a surface. Mosaics have, traditionally, been made using materials such as natural stone, metal, glass, ceramic and porcelain.
What, then, is the mosaic we create with our lives?
Can we see the mosaic being created by our thoughts, our actions, our designs and the way we live our lives?
What does the mosaic include? How does it come together?
Our lives, our families and friends, the things we share and the things we produce….the way our lives intersect in the region of the world we live in…our interactions with our culture, our local history and the history of the world…what kind of mosaic is created by the way we live our lives? What stories does our mosaic tell?
When people start asking questions, they can go on forever, can’t they?
In our design studio in Istanbul’s Historical Peninsula, we continue to design with these questions and this spirit in our mind.
Our Mosaic Collection has been inspired by the Byzantine mosaics found in the Great Palace in what is modern day Sultanahmet. In these timeless works of art we see eyes that still, today, seem to look at us.
Eyes see many things. They can speak loudly or in silence. Can we see the stories told by the eyes around us? How much of them can we make out?
Our Mosaic Collection includes:
The Eye: The eye is not like the tongue. The eye says much without speaking. Passively, the eye sees. Actively, it communicates. Eyes speak with no shame, no shyness. Eyes communicate without hiding. They can scream or whisper and everyone’s eyes see differently.
The Lip: The lip is like an open door for tasting. Thanks to the lip we can make our thoughts known.
Gold: A symbol of power and infinity. We chase gold for its sparkle, its light and its energy. Gold symbolizes wealth, power, nature and hope.
Our designs are made with a variety of materials and are produced by the hands of masters and in our atelier.
All our designs, whether home accessories or jewelry, are handmade.
We create our mosaics with our designs on things we produce.
We would love for our mosaics to be timeless and in use for many years.
COFFEE: Includes specially designed coffee cups for Turkish coffee, espresso, cappuccino and Arabic coffee and a specially designed coffee set to accompany the cups.
FOOD AND DRINKS: This category includes specially designed bowls to use in the kitchen or as decorative objects in any part of the home. The bowls work equally well in a lounge or on a worktable and can be used as salad or food bowls when the need arises. Bottle and glass designs for different beverage choices will help to create a special ambiance in your home.
ENERGIZE YOUR HOME: It is our hope that our designs in this group will serve to open doors and bring a positive energy to your home.
