A selection of work designed from unconventional materials such as synthetic sponge, porcelain, wood, plastic, silicone and polyurethane, as well as from typically precious materials allows a short look at the current tendencies of the Turkish art jewelry scene.

It also shows common patterns and themes between different artists such as strong chromatic expressions present in the work of Aisegul Telli ,Burcu Sulek, Hakan Aktug and Nevin Arig; Nature-inspired forms of Nazan Pak, Ela Cindoruk and Senay Akin; fragile and poetic work of Burcu Buyukunal, Selen Ozus and Gozde Erdogan and passion for up-cycling shared by jewellers Gulnur Ozdaglar, Snem Yildirim and Leyla Taranto.

Aisegul Telli will hold a talk followed by a discussion round on the 13. July at 18:30 h.
