Story:

Yıldız Şermet’s Turkish towel figures come from historical Kütahya tile and ceramics. As opposed to the world famous Iznik tiles representing Ottoman court, sultans and their royal lifestyle, Kütahya figures were taken from daily life of the era, reflecting ordinary people of the 17th and 18th centuries. Şermet believes the importance of folk art in order to interpret the history, how people perceived life and the world around them, through looking at the arts and crafts of the era.

London-based art and design company PATA Art & Design collaborates with the contemporary artist Yıldız Şermet for Handmade Chelsea Online and introduces her handmade textiles and art to the UK. Şermet revives the disappearing Anatolian arts and crafts traditions, and creates her own textile language. The artist combines several Anatolian crafts; Ottoman Iznik tiles figures can be seen on her Turkish towel sets and kimonos while a 600-year-old ancient fabric print tradition is reinterpreted in contemporary scarves with the artist’s signature cypress trees and cloud motifs inspired by miniature paintings. This also includes a traditional fabric printing where luxury cotton and wool fabrics are hand-printed with linden tree woodblocks, then to be hand-painted with goose feather paintbrushes.
Yıldız Şermet is a contemporary artist based in Istanbul, Turkey. Following a degree in Arts, she worked as a decorator, illustrator and an art director. Her passion for the miniature art inspired her to discover Eastern traditions which had quite a different approach than the Western style education that she had received. Using different materials like wires, textiles and ceramics, she combines traditional miniature art subjects with unlikely elements and uses Anatolian and miniature motifs in more contemporary compositions. Her works are now exhibited in various museums, art galleries and institutions including the United States Embassy in Istanbul.
PATA Art & Design is an art and design company where you can find a collection of traditional works of art that draws on a contemporary approach by Turkish artists, illustrators and designers. Duygu Pata is the force behind Pata Art & Design, who established her own company in London to promote local artists, illustrators and designers in the global art scene and make her native Turkish culture come alive in the homes and hearts of others who may never have visited the country. She studied Art History and Theory at the University of Edinburgh and had first-hand work experience in many art institutions including Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Venice.
