When we had our exhibition at the Hünkar Kasrı (Sultan’s pavilion) at the New Mosque in Eminonu, we were privileged to exhibit our work alongside some pretty ancient (and some recently restored) work. It wasn’t possible to visit without being inspired. Having taken some photos and knowing that one of the best ways to learn is through emulation, I decided to create my own versions. Here’s the first border tile based on one in the pavilion before firing.
