Pittsburgh Polish Pottery
at The Amish Home
Handcrafted and high quality – it’s why you love our Amish furniture, and why we know you’ll love our Polish Pottery selection!
Artisans have been taking advantage of plentiful natural clay deposits in the area now known as Boleslawiec, Poland, since as early as the 14th century. This high feldspar and silicone clay is fired at extremely high temperatures to create a strong, durable stoneware, made watertight with a cadmium- and lead-free glaze. Authentic Boleslawiec ceramics are typically stamped with a B.
Polish pottery is decorated using sponge stamps to paint colorful glaze designs. Artists carve these stamps by hand, and each color and pattern is stamped individually. Early designs were inspired by Art Nouveau and later Art Deco movements, such as the Peacock’s Eye motif, which is still incredibly popular today. The traditional color schemes of blue and green on white backgrounds have expanded to include yellows, reds, grays, and even sometimes purples and black. Because the patterns are hand-stamped, each piece is unique, with variations in color and pattern being not only expected, but prized.
The most accomplished Polish Pottery artisans can become Certified Master Artists. In addition to training apprentice artists, the Certified Master Artists design and produce their own signature “Unikat” patterns. These Unikat pieces often feature more colors, sometimes with brushed colors in addition to the stamping. These rare pieces are coveted and collectable.
