They have small bowls from Turkish Lira 15 to 25 onward but those are small ones and not so artistic. If you wish to buy nice place with good art work be ready to pay about TL150-250 per plate of 30cm which is reasonable for the work and service provided!
They offer great discount which makes it worthwhile! No need to haggle in the bazaars...
