ZAKLADY CERAMICZNE BOLESLAWIEC




Zaklady Ceramiczne Boleslawiec is one of the oldest and largest stoneware factories in Boleslawiec, Poland. It is located in the south-west of Poland, near the German and Czech borders - 200 km from Berlin, 250 km from Prague and 450 km from Warsaw. Boleslawiec was known as Bunzlau until 1945 when the whole of German Silesia came within the redrawn borders of Poland.

Zaklady Ceramiczne Boleslawiec is famous for its stoneware tableware, hand-formed and hand-decorated using the unique punch technique. It is one of the oldest and biggest companies in the Boleslawiec region. Many of their products, those from their Signature Collection, are crafted by a master artisan and are hand-signed. These artists earn the privilege of creating their own work from start to finish. Since the process of making and painting the pottery is unique, no two pieces are exactly alike.

Polish ceramics are renowned for their beautiful hand-finish, original style and high practicality. Stoneware products have a unique design, drawing from a several-hundred-year tradition of Polish, Czech and German pottery making, a distinct stylistic canon, known in German as Bunzlauer Geschirr. Significantly, older Boleslawiec stoneware pottery patterns have endured in many households. As an integral part of the Silesian culture, the stoneware dishes have a great sentimental value to Poles and Germans equally.

Although the inspiration came from past accomplishments, the contemporary Boleslawiec polish pottery have been creatively refined by designers and adjusted to the requirements of the modern cuisine, taking into account vessels typical of different regions of Europe. No manufacturer using an automated production process can provide such a variety of products. Polish pottery pattern line is constantly enriched with new, handsome forms.

The Boleslawiec pottery stoneware has for years been in great demand. Products range from dinnerware sets, serving pieces, bakeware, bowls, soup tureens, tea and coffee services to accessories such as vases, pitchers and utensil holders, to name a few. What makes it distinctive is the beautiful hand-stamped designs.

A remarkable success in the history of Boleslawiec pottery stoneware was a gold medal at an exposition in London in 1848, at the time, the biggest trade fair in the world.

At present, this company has been awarded the highest prizes in the industrial design in Poland, such as the following:
