Turkish Cini Plates by Cemre for The Sims Resource

TURKISH TILE ART

Cini (earthenware glazed tiles) are usually used in architecture, and products such as pots and bowls are referred to as ceramics.

Although the word Cini might seem to have something to do with China, experts accept that the art is totally indigenous to the Turkish people.

Until the 18th century, cini in architecture were called Kasi and cini objects used in daily life (plates, vases, bowls etc.) were called evani (kitchen equipment). At that time, Chinese porcelain was very popular and widely imported. In order to emphasize the quality of the Turkish-made kasi these began to be called cini.

Cini, which is a branch of ceramic art that developed in Central Asia, was brought to Anatolia by the Seljuks. It occupied a very important place in Ottoman architectural decoration and embellished mosques, medreses (theological schools), tombs and palaces. The early Ottoman period continued the Seljuk heritage. Geometric writings with figures, plant designs, and yellow and green colors were used. İznik, which also used to be a center of ceramic art, maintained its dominant position between the 14th-18th centuries.

In addition to the Iznik workshops, which lost much of their importance in the 17th century, Kutahya became another center for ceramics in the 15th century, although the quality of its products was inferior to those of Iznik. Kutahya-styled ceramics are generally blue, red, yellow, purple and green.

In the 18th century, Canakkale ceramics that demonstrate regional characteristics appeared. After the 17th century, ceramics began to degenerate. Up to the republican period, we mainly see Kutahya and Iznik ceramics, as well as Yildiz porcelain, the raw material for which was imported from France.

In the 18th century, the ceramic arts in Iznik finally died out. At the same period, Kutahya cini reached their peak but began to lose quality during that same century. In the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, Iznik designs began to be imitated elsewhere. Today, the center of this art is Kutahya.
