Ayasofya in Brick from Wool & Silk
The magnificent power of the Ayasofya, captured in a gorgeous handknotted rug
Seeking to capture the awesome beauty of the Ayasofya Mosque in Istanbul, Erbil Tezcan of Wool & Silk Rugs has captured the view you might see as you enter the vaulted main chamber and look upwards into the dome itself. The design has wonderful movement and and creates an interesting depth as it depicts the interplay of light and shadow from the many windows in the architecture of the legendary landmark.
Wool & Silk is a direct reflection of the heart and soul of its founder, Erbil Tezcan. Combining a joy for life and thoughtful design with a deep knowledge and appreciation of the rug industry, Wool & Silk consistently produces some of the most unique and progressive contemporary looks in the rug industry. Recipient of several international awards for carpet design, as judged by his own peers and the greater industry, Erbil Tezcan finds often inspiration in antique Asian tapestries and impressionist art, yet many of the most striking Wool & Silk designs originate from his own landscape photography. His zeal for life is only matched by his integrity in the belief that within the medium of the simple rug or carpet the potential for it to be elevated into a refined work of art exists. He is fond of saying that his designs "have to be colorful, like our lives."
