Arda Glassware takes a thoroughly modern approach to dinnerware design, yet prides itself on keeping alive the glass-making and glazing traditions developed in Turkey during the Ottoman period. Founded in 1989, this innovative company creates exquisite platters, plates, and other glassware essentials using a combination of manual and machine-driven techniques, including centrifugation and the Schiller method (machine-blowing). Arda's seemingly endless range of styles includes transparent glass, alabaster, and painted pieces available in hundreds of distinctive patterns and shapes — from the gilded, ornate Vanessa series (which would have fit perfectly in Louis XVI's flatware collection) to authentic-looking oyster dishes embellished with silver plating.
