@Today we visited Bursa, the first capital of Ottoman Empire. To begin with we observed Cumalikizik, a traditional settlement with 700 yearsf history. This colony has come to attract attention in the recent ten years. We enjoyed walking and sketching maze of streets characterized by the lined-up houses with Cumba, a structure with the second and/or the third story jutting out over the street. Then we moved to downtown Bursa to visit Ulu Camii, a building contemporary with Eski Camii at Edirne, Koza Han?, which has a popular caf? in the courtyard, and, Ye?l@T?rbe (green tombjin which the body of Mehmed I@rests. Then, we left Bursa for Iznik to stay at the guest house of Iznik foundation Tiles.

Today, we visited The Glass Furnace, a glass works at Sile, a town in the suburb of Istanbul led by Dr. Dundar, vice dean of Bahcesehir University and Ms. Kultur, teaching fellow. Following the observation of the bottega and the process of glass blowing in the morning, we worked on glass bead manufacture in the afternoon. Then, we moved to another room to create a glasswork applying a technique called fusion, where pieces of colored glass in whatever shapes are placed on a sheet of clear glass. The work will be completed later as pieces of objet dfart or plates of fused glass after being treated in the kiln at the glassworks. The students were reminded of the theme of emosaicf which they practiced in the fundamental design studio in the first year of the undergraduate course, and got involved with the work appreciating new aspects of glassworks. Then, in the showroom of the glassworks we appreciated pieces of Turkish traditional blown glass, such as vases, called Cesmibulbul.

After the course, Ms. Vahapoglu and@Ms. Duvan, who participated in eICSA in Japan 2009f program, treated us with their homemade dishes as well as Turkish dessert and cay at Ms. Vahapoglufs home. Students had a pleasant time with Turkish students. It made a refreshing opportunity for them after an eventful day.
