About Polish Pottery
A Rich History
The Art of Polish Pottery, started as local folk art centuries ago but it fully developed in the 19th century and has continued ever since. The pottery originated in Bolesławiec, a polish city in Lower Silesia. All designs were inspired by the peacock feather “Pfauenauge” or “Peacock’s Eye” and its colors; cobalt blue, sage green and ferrous red.
From the beginning of the nineteenth century till today this pottery has not changed its original unique character. People from all over the world admire its folk design. While kneading and burning technology has changed slightly over the years, its unique appearance has survived to this day in its original form. Each piece of ware is hand-painted or stamped. In this way, each product is original and unique.
Production and usage
All ceramic vessels and other pottery products are made from stoneware. Formed, then hand- painted and burned at temperatures over 1250 degrees Celsius.
