This lecture was less related to graphic design and more about the art history of traditional Islamic and Middle-Eastern tile painting. It was neat to hear how the influence of ceramic painting traveled over seas, etc. and how other counties were trying to mimic one another.

My favorite part was "You can't control ceramics!"
There were a lot of photos of different styles of ceramics and painting on ceramics, most of which I didn't understand, but they were nice to look at anyway. I understand that there are a lot of different techniques in tiles, glazing, painting, and ceramic making that produce different effects.

I thought it was interesting when Filiz Yenisehirlioglu was showing the influence ceramics had over the many years. When she showed two bowls next to eachother many hundred years apart but were very similar really made me realize the influence different cultures and areas of the world have on eachother.

Filiz's although interesting was hard to understand. This was primarily because of her accent. I thought it was interesting how she talked about, I believe, that it was the english who tried to immitate chinese ceramics. Excpecially with the blue and white decoration. I love the images she showed. All very colorful and interesting!

I thought this lecture was interesting, but not exactally pertaining to a GD major. I really enjoy ceramics so it was nice to see the beautiful painting and glazes. It takes a lot of talent to be able to make such delicate and detailed paterns and pictures on ceramics- I hope I can eventually be better at it.

I enjoyed this lecture, the history of art in the Middle East is fascinating. She touched on elements of art history that I was not aware of and am now eager to learn more about. The images of these tiles were beautiful, and I can only imagine that they are breathtaking when seen in person. I hope to see them one day.
