    (Can't recall the name): Iznik tiles

    Beautiful hand-painted Ottoman vases

    I can't recall the name of this shop I went to, not to buy anything, but to admire and get quick lessons on Iznik tiles. It's owned by German and the proprietor has been kind enough to explain to me the process despite knowing I'm not buying anything.

    The products range from cheap machine-made tiles (from China, where else?!), as well as handmade ones patterned after indigenous designs.
