Boleslawiec pottery

Boleslawiec Polish Pottery is hand crafted at many small manufacturing companies in Boleslawiec, Poland. Artisans will create the initial pattern and hand paint a pattern, so all of the artists know what each pattern will be and can keep a similar style to the completed pieces. No machines used for molding or pattern stamping therefore there each Polish Pottery product is a unique masterpiece.

Polish Pottery has been based on the old traditions of the local potters making pottery ceramics. All authentic Boleslawiec pottery will have “Hand made in Poland” stamped on the bottom. The Boleslawiec pottery that is most popular today is the white or cream colored ceramic with dark blue, green, yellow, brown, and sometimes red or purple motifs. The most common designs include dots, abstracts, swirls, and the favorite “peacocks eye”.
