Inge Bečka and Mariëtte Wolbert

Iznik Design Collaboration
In 2016, Iznik Tiles and Ceramics and Iznik Foundation started a collaboration with Dutch designers Inge Bečka and Mariëtte Wolbert. Bečka is a ceramic artist specialized in porcelain, whereas Wolbert specializes in textile handicrafts using various materials. 
With this collaboration, the traditional handicraft of Turkish ceramics was combined with the contemporary design of the Dutch design duo. 

In the Summer of 2016, Bečka and Wolbert travelled to Iznik to work at the ateliers of the Iznik Foundation. This workshop resulted in a first line of products and designs presented in the Spring of 2018.
