Polish Pottery Stoneware - Blending Patterns

Polish Pottery is prized for itís bright colors and bold nature inspired patterns. Polish pottery began as folk art in the early 1800's, with designs inspired by the eye of the peacock feather. Over the years new designs have evolved as a form of art passed along from one generation to the next while still preserving the charm of Old Europe. The pottery pieces are fired, then painted and decorated. Sponges are used today instead of potatoes. The pieces marked "Unikat" have a great deal of hand-painting done with brushes.

A basic colors of cobalt blue, peacock blue, rust red, sage and earth tones are common on traditional pottery dishes. Newer pieces expand the color palette to include yellows, corals, aqua and teal.

Some people will collect just one pattern.  Instead of choosing one particular pattern, the majority of people who collect Polish Pottery love mix and match these colorful stoneware dishes. After all that's way it's intended to be used. Most people will ease into blending patterns starting with a few closely coordinating patterns they especially liked and moving out from there. For instance, chose everything with the dark blues versus the lighter blues. Simply chose pieces you like. The great thing about Polish Pottery is that you can do this and still achieve elegance at the table with an array of patterns and colors that rivals any perfectly matched set.

Polish Pottery Stoneware - Use and Care:

  •  
  • Is it just for show or can I really use it? Definitely use it! It is one of the best and most durable stoneware products on the market.
  • Polish stoneware may be used with confidence in your oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher.
  • Each piece may be used in the regular oven at temperatures of up to 350 degrees.
  • Polish pottery is also very easy to clean. The non-porous protective glaze finish provides improved grip and easy cleaning - no need to soak.
  • Stoneware pottery retains both heat and cold for long periods of time.
  • Please try to avoid dropping this stoneware. While our dishes are incredibly tough, all clay products are breakable.
  • Avoid sharp temperature swings: cold to hot or vice versa. Always allow stoneware to cool to room temperature prior to adding liquid or cleaning. Putting hot stoneware into cool water can cause it to crack or break. When taking a piece from the refrigerator or freezer, allow it to warm to room temperature before placing in the oven.
  • Do not use pottery dishes on an electric burner, under broiler or on direct heat source.
  • Stoneware can become really hot in the oven. Always use a pot holder or oven mitt when dealing with hot stoneware.

    With a little care, your Boleslawiec stoneware dinnerware will provide years of beauty and enjoyment.
