Pottery Avenue & Zaklady Ceramiczne "BOLESLAWIEC"

 

Boleslawiec Poland, home of Polish Pottery & Polish Stoneware is a tranquil city where you feel as though you have taken a step back in time to a charming European village where families have known each other for centuries and family, celebrations and love flourish.  Imagine now a town square with a enchanting community building constructed of old world architecture and charm in the center surrounded by pastel candy colored buildings nestled side by side and a joyous bustling community gathering at coffee bars restaurants and stores, then you will have imagined Boleslawiec Poland.  The pleasant vibe emanates from the people and their rich family traditions, horticulture and commerce. 

In Boleslawiec the main avenue is a "pottery avenue", home to many factory outlet stores along the street just outside the town square.  The outlets are a treasure trove of pottery & stoneware, shopped by tourists from east to west.   All the manufactures have something special to offer but Pottery Avenue imports primarily from Zaklady Ceramiczne Boleslawiec who is the original manufacture and although all Polish Pottery is hand crafted, we find Z.C. to have the finest quality and adheres to business practices that lead their industry.  By creating the industry standards, Zaklady has paved the way for the collective success of Polish Pottery and Polish Stoneware across the world.

Zaklady Ceramiczne Boleslawiec, is the original factory and allowed to use the town’s name in their company title.  Z.C  (Zakłady Ceramiczne "BOLESŁAWIEC"), is also the largest manufacturer of Polish stoneware in Poland.  This factory has run a cooperative & profitable effort uniting technique and artisan for well over a century.  The factory employees over 600 people and are a thriving export enabling the folk-art tradition to be alive and well in a time where more and more products are mass produced by machines losing their uniqueness and precious charm.  The factory enjoys a superior reputation among their peers and collectors across the world.

Simplistic to elaborate designs, functionality, durability and variety of the dishes determine the important aesthetic value which raises the natural beauty in our homes.  The products from Zaklady are of the highest quality and heritage value, free of harmful chemicals such as lead or cadmium and safe to use in our kitchens in the microwave, oven, dishwasher and freezer. 

Zaklady and their teams have been awarded countless trophies, medals and awards throughout Europe for their accomplishment and stand the test of time as they capture more and more of the table top market place.
