Typography in Contemporary Turkish Ceramic Art
The documented relationship between ceramic art and typography can be traced from the creation of Sumerian tablets dating from 8000 B.C., to contemporary artworks. Due to clay’s malleability, it is conducive to the creation of letters and signs. Moreover, since its durability increases with firing, the medium can preserve written information for a long time. Ceramic objects and typography can come together as a means of communication and information transfer that are a means of artistic self-expression.
