Ebru is one of his skills, which made him famous and got him invited to the court by Sultan Abdulaziz. Only a small number of his works are preserved in the Ozbekler Convent today. On the cabinet where the originals are kept is written “Adornments are hidden in the cabinet, crafter is burried in the earth.”, composed by Edhem Efendi and upon his request inscribed on the cabinet after his death. He died in 1904.
He was the ebru master of the twentieth century. He gave classes on caligraphy, bookbinding and ebru. He thaught ebru to his sons Sami and Sacid and his nephew Mustafa Duzgunman.
