I'm half Turkish, half American. And, I was born in Istanbul. But, that's only the beginning of the story.
I have lived on three continents and in ten different cities over the past two decades. Not to pick favorites, but New York, Barcelona and Dublin have all left lasting impressions on me.
I still live a slightly nomadic life. Currently, I split time between a tiny village in rural Co. Wicklow, Ireland and the cosmopolitan city of Istanbul, Turkey.
My environment deeply influences the work that I create. Currently, I am inspired by the raw beauty of the Irish Sea, the sun bleached cliffs of the Mediterranean coast, and the beautiful ancient pots from these historic lands.
Having to constantly adapt to a new life in a new place has made me appreciate the power of a home that feels like a sanctuary. It's a gift to have a place that you want to come home to. I've enjoyed creating my own refuge across the globe and I'd love to help you do the same.
I have to admit these are some very unsettling times. I frequently find myself in an unending loop of checking my phone, freaking out, telling myself it doesn't do my sanity any good, then 10 seconds later checking my phone again. You too?? Well, I created a little something that can help.

I believe that it is better to own a single thoughtful object than many unintentional ones.
I believe that in order to enjoy life we need to experience beauty on a daily basis – in our homes, in our routines, in even the most mundane of our tasks.
I believe in creating objects that belong to the past and the future
I believe there is beauty in the natural, the hand crafted, the imperfect.
