The Ala jug is inspired by the Ottoman era, where design and production of colorful and intricate ceramic art was at the highest. Especially flower motifs were at the time, a treasured theme in several of these amazing artworks, but also symbols and poetic references were used as inspiration in the making of designs, shapes and decorations.
The ceramic jug 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.
