CRAFT - The process starts by creating a special base called biscuit; 80 percent of this base is made of LOCALLY SOURCED SOIL QUARTZ. The rest is a special clay and glass powder brought from İznik Mountains. Biscuits are dried for seven to 10 days then cooked at 930 degrees Celsius by gradually increasing the heat in the giant ovens. Then rests for another week. The next step is the most complex. Traditional geometric and floral motifs (including tulips, roses, and carnations) are drawn on sketch paper, pierced with needles, and transferred to biscuits using charcoal powder. The small traces of coal are then carefully shaped with black paint and the designs are painted with natural metal oxide colors. Copper oxide produces a rich cobalt blue. Iron oxide turns into a deep, deep Iznik red. The final step, glazing, is where the magic takes place. The painted biscuit is glazed with a mixture of thick white quartz, metal oxide, and soda. This magical layer is called "SIR" in Turkish, which means "THE SECRET" This final coating adds a satin finish, absorbs the depth of colors, and protects the paint from the outer effects. Finally, the piece is air-dried and re-baked for 12 hours in a 1000 degree oven. It makes IZNIK ceramics almost indestructible. Pale colors transformed by fire turn into intense, vibrant tones, and bright IZNIK TILES are born.
