There is a wonderful exhibition of hand painted Ottoman style ceramics at the Fethiye Culture Centre gallery this week.
If you are in Fethiye do go along and have a look; we highly recommended a visit.
The show is called ‘Benim Adım: TOPRAK’, which translates as ‘My name is Earth’.
The skill of artist, Fahri Çetinkaya, is something to behold: each exhibit contains its own intricate, miniature world.
Through each delicate brushstroke Çetinkaya not only reveals his own mastery of this historic technique but also the refined splendour of this centuries old, incredibly rich part of Turkey’s Ottoman heritage.
Each exquisite piece tells a story

The exhibition is open every day from 11.am to 5pm – approximately. It finishes on Friday 31st October. Admission is free.
