The handmade Safiye bowl is decorated with beautiful motifs of tulips and carnations in blue, red and turquoise colors on a dark turquoise – green backdrop. The illustration is inspired by the symbol for the “Tree of life” and is handmade with a careful sense of artistic poetry. The gorgeous decorations make this ceramic bowl ideal for décor as well as for serving food, salad, and fruits or maybe for displaying potpourri, aromatic soaps, and fragrance bags in your bathroom. The Safiye bowl is a unique piece of ceramic handicraft, with a historic touch. Hence especially floral motifs have been a valued theme in Turkish handicrafts through centuries – not the least in the Ottoman period, where particularly the tulip were prized in line with precious metal.
The ceramic bowl is handmade in Kütahya, an area of Turkey well known for their techniques, traditions and designs in ceramic art and craftmanship. Where the renowned Iznik workshops were closely connected to the royal court, the artisans in Kütahya mainly produced elegant and sophisticated household ceramics to the higher middle class. Through the last centuries, Kütahya has developed into a major ceramic area, famous for their outstanding quality and breathtaking designs and handicraft. At Malukka, we have chosen to present carefully selected and handmade ceramics from Kütahya, with a special focus on an inspiring and aesthetic design, a meticulous handiwork and good quality.
The gorgeous Safiye bowl is both eye-catching and elegant with its wonderful and joyful color combinations and adorable romantic motifs. It is made with a sense of details and a focus on quality and originality, that will add an extra and inspiring dimension to your kitchen or bathroom. Being lead and cadmium free, it is safe to use for containing and storing e.g., food.
The Safiye bowl is a unique piece of pottery and should be preserved with attention and care. The ceramic bowl is dishwasher safe.
As the ceramics are handmade by small and self-employed artisans, the delivery time may vary, and in some cases, take longer than the estimated 23 working days – due to the nature of handicrafts or circumstances at the individual artisan’s workshop. In this case you will, of course, be contacted by us. For further information please read “about us” and Terms and Conditions.
