About the DESIGN (Family Design):

As all other traditional Turkish arts have, our own design also has got many meanings and symbols in it.
This one is called the ‘Family Design’ and has got the most common Turkish flowers in it like roses, tulips, carnations, and apple tree flowers which all have a meaning;
Rose: Love
Tulip: Respect
Carnation: Health
Apple tree blossom: Happiness
The white raised parts with dots are the protective eyes.
So actually, this design contains everything that’s needed in a family.

About the SHAPE (Hittite Decanter)

The pitcher has a very unique and special shape that comes from the Hittite period 1600 BC, Cappadocia. It was originally used for serving wine as Cappadocia is also very famous with its wineries.
It is made from 4 different parts;
1. bottom, stand
2. circle
3. handle
4. spout

The circle shape in the middle symbolizes the sun which was the goddess of the Hittite Civilization and they had special wine drinking ceremonies.
They started the ceremony when the sun shined thru the hole. By putting the arm thru the circle and holding it on the shoulder, they poured the wine from the special pitcher.

This unusual shape is still being made in our town Avanos and the original ones that were found in archeological digs around the region are now on display in the Anatolian Civilization Museum in our capital, Ankara.

! P.S. We also take special orders. For example, you love this pattern very much but you prefer it on another ceramic shape OR you really loved the item but want it in another color OR you liked the shape but prefer it with another design/pattern. You can also ask for a different size of the same item. Everything is possible and we will be happy to make your wishes come true :)
