Photographer's Note

The Glass Furnace Foundation has a special treat in store for glass lovers on December 16th. From 11:00am to 4:00pm, glass masters İzzet Özdemir and Mehmet Kömürcü will do Çeşm-i bülbül (traditional Turkish swirled glass) and glass-blowing demostrations while national glass master Ahmet Özdeniz will demonstrate how to make glass evil eyes. Attendants will also have the opportunity to make their own glass works, from beads for children to glass-fused plates and Christmas ornaments for adults. The foundation has partnerships with the Turkish Cultural Foundation to ensure that traditional glass techniques do not die out and has been offering scholarships to university students since 2006. Their New Year's Festival looks to be a special treat with a variety of works on display for sale on 35 tables, with a tables for cookies and köfte also present for anyone who has a food craving while there.
