Yildiz professes a craft and elevates it in the rank of arts. As opposed to the West, where ceramic is part of “minor arts”, in the Muslim world it was one of the most appreciated forms of aesthetic expressions. Orhan Pamuk’s book “My Name is Red” is a veritable compendium for those interested in the importance of traditional motives in the Eastern World. Yildiz Ibram is studying and transposing the traditional elements into the contemporary decorative arts of today. She is a creator of Ottoman ceramic. And what does this mean? It means working with a major element of decoration from a space that was not only an Empire, but a World in itself. It means working with a decoration that comprises the history of the plastic arts for at least a millennium on few continents.
