Our Pottery comes from several factories in Boleslawiec, Poland. The highest quality Polish pottery is made by famous Ceramika Artystyczna factory. Another large manufacturer is Zaklady Ceramiczne Boleslawiec and we carry variety of stunning patterns from that factory. We also carry some pottery from smaller factories.
Due to the nature of hand painting, slight color and/or pattern variation may occur.
The original Polish Pottery has been produced in Boleslawiec since 1830. Each piece is hand-formed and hand-decorated using the unique punch technique. Decorative motifs are applied to the surface of the pottery object with small stamps soaked in paint. Different types of stamps are used to apply patterns on a single product. The number of individual decorative motifs achieved in this way can reach several thousand. Painting on pottery became richly colorful in Boleslawiec region. Most traditional decorations are inspired by the colors of the peacock feather. Recently, however, other patterns have emerged and special - more sophisticated patterns are introduced from time to time. These increasingly detailed patterns are crafted with additional hand painting - therefore, these pieces cost more than traditional designs. The work produced by original masters is called UNIKAT and pieces are signed by the individual artist. The price reflects the quality, detailed, careful painting, attention to design and time dedicated to each piece of pottery. The patterns are designed to complement each other. This allows collectors of Polish Pottery to mix and match patterns.
