Centuries Ahead

Iznik tiles themselves are treasures. For this rare collection of furniture  they were custom made in a scale that has never been executed before.

Iznik tile from Turkey is a tradition originating in the 12th century and is remarkable most notably for the quartz content from which the body of the tiles are made. On top of this than comes the exquisite hand painted artistry of the Iznik craftsman. Each table is designed to be an extension of the motif in the tile itself.

Each of the hand-crafted tables is made by an artisan, a master craftsman, one wood worker and one bronze caster, both California based.

Centuries Ahead was formed to create treasures  of museum quality for our time and of the future…

Years after my travels to Bhutan, I encountered Stephanie Waisler-Rubin the founder of The Unatti Foundation. Combining a trilateral approach to its mission, the Unatti Foundation provides opportunity for the underprivileged and underserved in Nepal. Their program focusing on Education, Self-Sufficiency, and Community Outreach address addresses poverty in children from multiple angles. Unatti operates a home for underprivileged children in the heart of Bhaktapur, caring for 18 girls, ages 3-17 years old, with the support of three housemothers. With the Unatti support and funding they attend the best English schools in the village and receive 24-hour care. The beautiful 100% Nepali wool hand felted bowls are created from the local sheep’s wool near the Unatti home. They are handcrafted by the Unatti girls and 100% of the profit goes right back into the Foundation to help support these children. They are $75.00 for a set of five and available on the Unatti Foundation website. http://unattifoundation.org/catalog/felt-bowls
