Ceramika Artystyczna is a ceramics cooperative producing Polish pottery in the small town of Boleslawiec in southwestern Poland. The region has long been home to stoneware producers and is known for its white clay excellent for pottery-making. Farmers created functional vessels which they decorated with simple, primitive-looking designs usually consisting of large dots representing the eye of the peacock feather.
In 1893, the factory of Paul und Sohn was established in the German town of Bunzlau, now Boleslawiec, and produced beautiful stoneware until 1945. After World War II the factory was closed down when the region was returned to Poland.
In the 1950s, Ceramika Artystyczna was founded in the old factory of Paul und Sohn, and pottery production was begun again as Polish pottery. Artisans continued the traditional technique, dating as far back as the early 1800s, of hand stamping designs that have been cut into sea sponges. Brushes are also employed to paint some design elements. The artists are infinitely creative in shape as well as pattern design, and their numerous awards attest to their artistry.
