Ceramics from Bolesławiec

You can find it in the best souvenir stores all over Poland. Presidents give it as gifts to their foreign guests, and the distinctive hand-painted mugs and plates in blue with white dots can be found both in the homes of people who are close to folk tradition and modernity. Ceramics from Bolesławiec is an export hit of Polish design, but also a beautiful story about the continuity of tradition beyond national barriers.

Not everyone in Poland is aware that the Lower Silesian town of Bolesławiec was famous for its ceramics long before it was within the country’s present borders. For centuries, the region’s German inhabitants perfected handmade production methods, which local manufactories continued after World War II.

In the post-war wave of popularization of folk art, the designs were enriched with traditional Polish motifs to grow into the scenery of kitchen cupboards on the Vistula River forever.

The small town of Bolesławiec is located by the highway from Wrocław to Germany, about an hour’s drive from our hosts in the Izera Mountains. The town is home to the Museum of Ceramics, where you can learn more about the history of ceramics in Lower Silesia, but most importantly – add to your home pottery collections!
