One of my favourite pots from previous trips is my black Carstens Ankara. I was thrilled to find another one on the last trip in a different form:
And with the original find:
I love the bright, turquoise glaze inside.
The Ankara glaze seems quite fragile on these vases. We’ve got a couple of the blue and black ones and there are a couple of nibbles out of some.
It is a gorgeous glaze though:
This is a collection I’m definitely keeping!
Unfortunately, I’ve got up at an ungodly hour today to do some work on my Masters course. I’ve got to give a presentation in a couple of weeks’ time about a planned scheme of work that is ‘Creative’. I haven’t yet planned this scheme of work… Hmmm. Ideas, ideas… anyone got any?

love carstens but ankara is one decor we have yet to own…… yours are cool.
They are pretty good. I’m after one in red now – not seen one yet in real life.
Wow, those are gorgeous. I had no idea the Ankara ones came in black. I wouldn’t sell those either!
