Turkish tile

Recently, my mother went to Turkey and brought back these photos of the interior of some of the mosques she visited. I love all the abstract designs and the bright colors.


  1. Is the tile from Turkey ceramic or cement?

  2. Hmm. Good question, because they certainly produce both ceramic and cement tile in Turkey. For this one, I'm guessing ceramic based on the glazes used. Of course, I'd have to see it in person to be sure.
    Maybe you should invite me to go on a trip to Turkey so we can get this burning question answered definitively!
