I would like to share my knowledge and learn more from ceramic communityI Moved back to Turkey from St.Maarten a year ago .Moving to Turkey offered more difficulties about to finding raw materials I quickly realized that the raw materials available in my country were very different from those to which I had access in Caribbeana and Usa . I had spent year learning how glaze ingredients interacted and behaved on Turkish Clay . Some of these components were unobtainable, others behaved in unexpected ways, and the clays and minerals are different. biggest challenge is in Turkey I have to make my own firits I 'm still searching ,learning and experimenting glazes to get best results .
