History

Polish pottery originated in a small German town, now on the Polish side of the border, named Bunzlau (now known as Boleslawiec) , and is still made exclusively in the area. Some of the very first pieces can be dated back as far as the 7th century! These early pieces were hand crafted and often decorated with potatoes and a chocolate colored mineral by farmers who could no longer work outside due to the harsh winters.  During the 19th century artists started to experiment with new colors and patterns in response to the Art Deco movement. In 1898 the government created a “Karamische Fachshule” or “Ceramic Technical Training School”.

Functionality and Durability

All of these pieces are made with white clay found only in the Boleslawiec region of Poland. Very durable and resistant to chipping and cracking. These pieces are nonstick, distribute heat evenly, and are safe to use in the freezer, oven, microwave, and even the dishwasher! These pieces are functional enough to cook and bake with, and are beautiful enough to simply display! TIP-To ensure your stoneware lasts for many years, avoid making sharp temperature changes. It is suggested to allow the pottery to get to room temperature before placing it in the freezer or the oven. Do not apply direct heat to your stoneware.
