Since the beginning of time patterns and ornaments have
been fundamental and are found in all cultures, not least in Turkey. In Olsson’s book
the ornament, the material, and the story of craftspeople, the artists and architects
who worked together to create the Ottoman tiled walls, meet.
The book is written in Swedish and this presentation will be in English.
