Silver in Turkish Art
Kusoglu is not only a celebrated scholar of art history who introduces the arts and culture of the Ottoman civilization to the contemporary audience, but he is also a master who personally executes the arts and crafts he writes about. Some know him as an in-layer of mother-of-pearl or silver; others know him as a jeweler, a metal sculptor, or graphic designer; others still know him as a brilliant master who brought a new dimension to the art of engraving. In this study, some of the author's beautiful silver works are presented along with those from the Ottoman period.
