Original Polish Pottery. Artistic craftsmanship dating back to the 18th century.
The history of Bolesławiec for over 350 years has been closely connected with the pottery and ceramics industry. Both the city and its surroundings are located in the Bóbr and Kwisa basins, which are rich in deposits of (unique) clay suitable for the production of stoneware products fired at a temperature of 1280 - 1300 ° C.
In addition, the pottery capital region is rich in clays used for glazing. Thanks to them, it became possible to obtain a brown, glassy surface. Called earthen glaze, they became typical for Bolesławiec products.
The earliest mention of a potter from Bolesławiec appears in the town books of Świdnica as early as 1380. Potters united in the guild at the beginning of the 16th century. Over the years, the craft has taken a distinctive and quickly recognizable form.
Initially, products were made of noble silica that were durable, which is ideal for broadly understood economic use. For several decades, forms of daily use were developed and refined, but also new ones were created, which was facilitated by the status of the city, its geographical location and the wealth of its inhabitants. The popularity of luxury goods grew, so the production of coffee and tea services began. In addition, the range of dishes offered has constantly expanded, from very large, decorative pots to delicate tableware.
Due to changes in the composition of the ceramic mass, a noble stoneware was obtained, which is characterized by a lighter color. The dominant color of the design was cobalt, green and brown, and the patterns were first applied with decorative stamps.
The production of ceramics did not collapse even during the political changes at the turn of 1980 and 1990, and now the local product of Bolesławiec finds its customers all over the world.
Durability, resistance to high and low temperatures as well as the artistic appearance of ceramics make it appreciated by connoisseurs and the interest of not only domestic buyers.
