Iznik Art is a style and way of life depicting imaginative and stylised flowers (e.g. iznik tulips), animals, ships and other natural themes. Its intricate lines require the maintenance of both rigour and perfection, demanding exquisite still and dexterity together with artistic flair. Iznik art was born in Ottoman Turkey (XV – XVIII centuries) when the empire was at peace, and artists from across the world were invited to come and work at the Sultan's Court. Potters and ceramic artists started practising this art in the ancient city of Nicea (known as Iznik today).
The Iznik style and methods of decoration evolved slowly over time. The meticulous research into colours; the whiteness of the clay; the motives and the freedom given to artists in their designs- all of this contributed to make Iznik Art one of the major cultural movements of all time. Due to the intricate firing process and unique chemical reactions in the kiln, creating each piece of Iznik ceramics is always a challenge!
