Zeynep has always found joy in her life by focusing on the things that are good, bring good and do good. She has found joy in creating ceramics, after a successful career in the Department of Education for almost 30 years, where she brought the love of learning to students and teachers alike, while raising two gorgeous boys.
Zeynep completed a Diploma in Ceramics in 2016 and since the beginning of 2018 has said goodbye to her career in the Department of Education to embrace a fulltime 'encore' career as a ceramic artist. She is continuing to teach in her studio in Gerringong to share her passion, commitment and enthusiasm for pottery one pot at a time.
Her work is an eclectic mix of contrasts - highly detailed intricate works to understated simplicity reflective of her surroundings and heritage. She prefers the philosophy of "every pot eventually finds a home" and therefore if you see it , you like it and it brings you joy, then it must have your name on it. Keep that moment, it may never come again.
