Sadık Yanik

Sadık's inspiration is the exquisite artistry of master carvers from the past.  He has visited many museums in Europe and studied books of antique meerschaum collections. In 1978, Sadık began a formal apprenticeship under his father Master Carver Hüseyin as a young boy of 13.  He continued his training under Yunus Ege and Dilâver Çelebi for four years, where his training in portraiture intensified.  His father continued to mentor Sadık until his retirement in 1988.  Sadık's sculpting skills are also in high demand as a mold maker.

The classical and mythological themes of Sadık's sculptures are the most extensive and challenging of any meerschaum carver. Sadık has carved nearly 1,000 different styles during his career.  The Yanık Collection is always interesting and varied in theme and composition.
