Born in 1989, Begüm Cânâ Özgür received her masters degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art, 3D design department. In 2014, she started her studio based in Istanbul where the cultural richness of the land has been the major motive in her work, developing an interest in ancient craft practices.
Cana’s work integrates design, art and crafts. Starting from the initial ideation, her design process is carried out hands on. She plays with common materials and existing techniques to fully understand their potential to develop a new contemporary expression. The experimental process results in the development and adaptation of skills, suggesting new ways of doing, which enables design ideas finding a truly authentic form of body in her work.
