Story Behind the Art:
Pottery Avenue is committed to preserving the art and tradition of fine Polish stoneware. Centered in and around Boleslawiec, the village has been famous for pottery since the early 14th century. Almost everyone in the village is involved in creating pottery, with most learning the craft from their parents and grandparents. The process to create a piece has remained unchanged. After the mold is created, the clay is shaped by the mold then fired. After its cooled, its painted by hand using a 300-year old technique called hand stamping. The item is then glazed and fired again. It can take 3-5 days to complete a piece and each must pass 8 separate quality checks. Most patterns are forms of twigs, flowers and birds in the classic cobalt and white, though other colors and patterns have been introduced to appeal to contemporary customers. www.potteryavenue.com/artisans
