Under the title of "Material Knowledge and Technology in Traditional Arts"
Pens, brushes, ink
Paints, gold, tombak
Papers, leathers, natural materials
These topics were discussed at Loca.
In traditional arts, some materials can be used as ready or reconstructed by the artist. For example, the calligrapher opens his pen himself, makes the ink himself, and the marbling creates almost all of his own materials. A solid foundation in these arts can only be established with the right knowledge of materials.
One of our traditional cultural heritage is Tombak art. The branch of art, which started to develop at the beginning of the 18th century, was frequently used in religious places, architectural structures and military fields. In time, it was used in architectural decorations and to give form to vessels and vases. The works made in the military field take their place in museums as the first examples. Being a major factor in the development of Ottoman art, tombak has been an example to other countries.
