Symbol Dictionary

Online

What do symbols and patterns express? Outside of the mathematical symbols and patterns on plates, what are some other symbols and patterns you come across every day? After a guided tour of the “Coffee Break” exhibition from the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Collection, we study the motifs and patterns found on the rose-water bottles, mugs, coffee cups and pitchers. We then go on to make a visual dictionary of the symbols and patterns and talk about the meaning of these images.
