Necib Özden Uz 22.08.- 31.08. 2014
was born in 1949 in Beysehir. After completion of the Darüşafaka school, I
graduated in Geology in İstanbul. I was employed there for many years in the
production of chemicals.
In 2000 I retired and moved to Akyaka.
In the "Cam Ocağı " Foundation, I attended weekend
classes and began to produce forms of glass and study
this technique. To prepare the moulds for the production of models, which are
made from clay, I had to learn ceramics, too.
With Erdoğan Nur, who conducted workshops in Akyaka, I have learned pottery and
spent very fruitful time in these events. I opened a workshop in Akyaka and
there, with friends and acquaintances, I studied the various techniques of
painting, ceramics, glass melting and deformation as well as fabric printing
techniques for 3 years. Currently, in my home studio, I am continuing my work
with glass and ceramic.
For five thousand years the processing of glass, it'stransparency, reflection
and refraction of light has been well-known and always an fascinating technique.
Glass, as a material, surprises from time to time with delightful results. In
addition to transparency, the main property of the glass, there is the
additional challenge to design forms with this nearly invisible material. Maybe
that is what makes working with glass so attractive.
2013, guided by Teoman Ata, I had a first exhibition of my work together with
the 'Group Gökova', in the Nail Çakırhan and Halet Çambel House Culture and Art.
