First Quality Handpainted Polish Pottery from
Located in Boiling Springs, just southwest of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, PotteryFaire is dedicated to providing the finest quality Polish stoneware products exclusively from the Ceramika Artystyczna pottery factory of Boleslawiec, Poland.
|Boleslawiec stoneware originated as folk art in the early 1800’s. It was created in the German province of Silesia, now a part of Poland. Inspired by the peacock feather, farmers created a statement of strength and beauty in each piece of their tableware. Today in a small village of Boleslawiec, Poland, skilled artists still individually handcraft and hand paint each piece of pottery using a hand-stamping technique and free-hand design. Antique Boleslawiec stoneware can be seen in museums and in private collections throughout Europe.
Many cooperatives work in Boleslawiec today, but the finest stoneware is produced by the cooperative known as “Boleslawiec Ceramika Artystyczna”. Each piece is stamped on the bottom with their noted seal. Excellent craftsmanship is the trademark of “Boleslawiec Ceramika Artystyczna”. Each piece is an individual artwork, so no two pieces are exactly alike.
