1. Blooming flowers of fire – Iznik Tiles

The tiles have met with architecture in the first half of 3000 BC and they been used century in Islamic architecture by 9 AC.

The ceramic tile art on this land was developed in the 13th century when Seljuk architecture had reached its peak and consequently many mosques, madrasas, mausoleums and palace walls are decorated with tiles. Anatolian ceramic tile has gained a new dimension with the Ottomans in the 14th century. Iznik tiles and ceramics has become an important manufacturing center particularly between 15th and 17th centuries. The tiles produced in here have graced the walls of the palaces in capital İstanbul.

We learn that tiles are used in buildings in Istanbul are manufactured in Iznik from historical documents. The ceramics which are known Miletus, Damascus group and Rhodes work, are produced in Iznik. Flower motifs such as tulips, hyacinths, pomegranates, cloves are used in Iznik tiles. In addition, patterns like people, birds, fish, rabbits, dogs are also seen. Blue, turquoise, green and red colors are the most commonly used colours.
