Meet the Artists! Episode #7: Yonca Ebüzziya X Defne Samman

In the seventh episode of ‘Meet the Artists!’ hosted by Yonca Ebüzziya we welcome ceramic artist Defne Samman, whose works are currently at the ‘CERAMIC WORKS’ presentation at the ’74Ceramics Selection.

Defne Samman is an artist based in Istanbul, Turkey. She graduated from the Ceramic & Glass Department at Mimar Sinan Fine Art University. She designs and creates tableware for chefs and artworks, objects for architectural projects. Earth itself, being the sole generator of all those materials, has always been the primary medium for Samman. Even so, she searches for the possibilities of all kinds of materials from nature to industrial products, believing that the human condition in its subtle complexity can only be tracked and communicated through that kind of investigation. She endeavours to place the dialogues of disappearance, re-finding and transformation in every piece she produces.
