Conceiving THE AYVALIK MOSAIC

For one whole year now I have planned and tossed the idea of making a floor mosaic for our house in Ayvalik at the northern aegean coast of Turkey. THE HOUSE is being renovated – so a great opportunity for me to do a floor mosaic as a sort of apprentice piece.

I have been practicing mosaic making since 3 years. It started in a mosaic studio (see Facebook Mustafa Salih Kamanlıoğlu) in the old city of ANKARA in Turkey – because I was looking for a place to practice my turkish language skills – and got absolutely hooked to THE CRAFT.

after attending a one week course in floor mosaic making at Luciana Notturni’s mosaic school   in the beautiful city of Ravenna in May 2015 I feel ready  … to take on this BIG PROJECT.
