Family Design Plate

The 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 it starts from the middle, the seed to symbolize the beginning of the family, in other words, the beginning of our art. It gets bigger with each circle, representing the extension of the family through generations. Each circle consists of common flowers in Turkey like roses, tulips, carnations, and apple tree flowers which all have a meaning;
Apple tree blossom: Happiness
The fish are a symbol of fertility.
The white raised parts with dots are the protective eyes.
So actually, this design contains everything that’s needed in a family.
There is a special technique used on the item which is the relief technique (on the raised dots). They are made with liquid clay and you will be able to feel them when touching the item.
It took about 2 weeks to make this plate.
! 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 :)
Please keep in mind that we need extra time for special orders.
