THE IMPORTANCE OF FÜREYA KORAL IN CONTEMPORARY DESIGN


Füreya Koral, a name identified with ceramic art, is a contemporary artist who exemplifies contemporary artists with his works produced throughout his art life, from abstract understanding to surreal understanding. Koral's works produced for decoration are the first examples in this area in Turkey. The wall panel, vase, dish, which it has done with traditional understanding, produced its works for the public. The motifs and traditional motifs belonging to many civilizations, such as Hittite motifs, which are among the treasures of Anatolia, have been integrated in a wide array of wall panels with ceramics and architecture. Füreya Koral, in later periods, directed to three-dimensional statues, completely inward, consisting of symbolic designs created works. In short, Füreya Koral is a master artist who combines Eastern and Western cultures with ceramic art by integrating them with Earth or a clay piece in his works, keeping tradition elements in the foreground.
