One of the most popular professors in the ceramics community and passed away last year, Prof. Dr. Ates Arcasoy's students will commemorate their teacher with an exhibition held in Bursa. The exhibition titled "Children of Ates (Fire)" can be viewed at Nilüfer Municipality Gallery N between 22-30 November.

The book Ceramic Technology, written by Ateş Arcasoy, who taught at Marmara University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Ceramics for many years and after his retirement, taught at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Ceramics, was one of the reference sources for the entire ceramics community for almost 40 years. Arcasoy, who emphasized that Ceramic Technology courses should be taught very well in practical and theoretical terms in schools where ceramics education is given, has made efforts for many years to increase the equipment of the students he has trained in this field. The book he rewrote together with Hasan Baskirkan was published with the support of the Turkish Ceramics Federation. Apart from those who were Ateş Arcasoy's own students, many ceramics students from other schools also had the opportunity to benefit from Arcasoy's knowledge thanks to this book.

In the exhibition titled "Children of Ates (Fire)" curated by Huri Aykut Ulker, ceramic artists whose education was contributed by Ates Arcasoy will take part with one of their works and commemorate their teachers. The exhibition at Nilufer Municipality Gallery N will open on Arcasoy's birthday, November 22. In addition in the panel to be held within the scope of the exhibition Assoc. Prof. Hasan Baskirkan and Dr. Fatma Batukan Belge will tell about Prof. Dr. Ates Arcasoy.
