Sultanahmet, Istanbul, Turkey

Sept 2008 Vacation 165

One of the things I love most about Turkey is the richness in color and texture and scent that seems to exude from every surface.  From carpets to ceramics, spices to sweets; it seems that everything you pass is calling to your senses, yearning for your attention.

Here, outside of Elegance Carpet (my favorite rug & ceramics shop in the city), they have created a colorful, artsy wall outside of the gallery using pieces of the broken ceramics that may have come as damaged parts of their orders or been damaged in the store.

I love it because they put use to their broken goods, so nothing goes to waste, and have created a beautiful collage of colorful pieces which draw attention from the passer-by.  Brilliant.
