Traditional Turkish tile is chramingly combined with hand dyed red silk in this gold plated bracelet.This beatiful piece measures approximately at 19cm(7.48")length of the bracelet can be arrenged as you wish, all you need to do is informing us after ordering.
Traditional Turkish tiles, named after the town in western Anatolia where it was made, is highly decorated ceramics that was produced between the late 15th and 17th centuries. The procedure is extremely complex and detailed designs to be applied to ceramic surfaces. Seven different materials, such as quartz, kaolin, chalk and sand in nature are mixed until the consistency of mud. Ground is purified of all contaminants. The brown sludge is transformed into a dazzling work of art is only possible after app. 20 days. Tile pulp is left to dry in shaping the prepared parts. Consistency of the dough is reached the hardness of the coating to be done on the parts. Thanks to this process, dry whites of the eye piece looks like a pure white. This distinguishes the white ground of Turkish tiles other ceramics. Then these parts are cooked about 900 degrees, that process is called "biscuit" which is the first cooking. It is slowly baked in a day for a period of close. To remove the roughness on the surface, biscuit is firing-grit treated. The determined pattern and coal dust is transferred to the surface of the tile. The surface contours of the pattern were first drawn to cobalt or black ceramic paint. Later, this pattern is painted inside the desired colors. The second time, slow cooked tiled is blast frozen.
A rich and subtle palette of colors was available with colors such as turquoise, cobalt blue, lilac, yellow, black, and pistachio. Gilding was also used.
In addition to plant motifs, examples decorated with calligraphy and (less commonly) geometric patterns that are a continuation of Seljuk traditions are to be found. A tile is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal, or even glass. Fine examples of cuerda seca tiles are to be found at the Bursa Green Mosque (1419-1420) and Tomb (1421-1422) the Mosque of Murad II (Edirne, 1436), the Tiled Kiosk (Istanbul), and the Tomb of Prince Mehmed (Istanbul, 1548).
