Polish stoneware, also known as Polish pottery, originated as folk art in the early part of the eighteen century in the German province of Silesia, now a part of Poland. The peacock feather inspired the early decorations. The history of pottery making in this ancient region of Europe dates back to the seventh century.
Polish stoneware is truly beautiful for all special occasions as well as very durable for everyday use. It is crafted out of clay indigenous to this region. Only natural and ecological materials are used throughout the entire production process. Polish stoneware is cadmium and lead free. Due to the special glaze and very high firing temperatures of 1250 degrees Celsius (2282 Fahrenheit) it is extremely durable and highly resistant to chipping and scratching.
Each piece of stoneware is handcrafted and hand decorated by artisans, using small sea sponges to apply unique and beautiful stamping patterns. Decorations and patterns come in wide variety of offerings. Traditional patterns are loved and appreciated for their strong and vibrant colors of cobalt blue, forest green, and reddish browns. Signature patterns are created only by master artists. These patterns are truly unique and reflect the artistís individual expression. All colors and designs are crafted to complement each other and to invite you to enjoy the fun process of searching for your perfect combination.
