ABOUT POLISH POTTERY
Polish Pottery is hand crafted with pride at many small manufacturing companies in Boleslawiec, Poland. All of the pieces are hand painted, using sponge stamp and brushes to paint the art on each piece. All of the patterns are hand-cut by the artists in the sponge and then they use the sponges and brushes to apply the unique pattern to each piece. Sponges are used because they keep the paint wet for a long time, allowing the artist to slowly go around one piece at a time, stamping a unique specific pattern. Several of the artists will create the initial pattern and hand paint a pattern, so all of the artists know what each pattern will be and can keep a similar style to the completed pieces.
Cer-Maz , previously known as KM, is a small family run pottery business under the direction of a young but very skilled potter Krzysztof Mazurek. Both of his parents and his brother are actively involved in running the family business. His mother is the lead pattern designer. She has over 20 years of experience as a lead artist at another pottery factory called Manufaktura. Cer-Maz is also well known for the high quality of their bisque. Their bisque is used by other pottery makers in the area. Cer-Maz is located in Warta Bolesławiecka, which is right outside of Bolesławiec and right next to other pottery shops like WR, Andy and Andar.
Caring for Polish Pottery
Polish pottery is freezer, oven, microwave and dishwasher safe under most circumstances. While these pieces are extremely durable, they are pottery, so care should be used.
Polish Pottery distributes heat evenly for perfect baking and is also nonstick for easy clean-up which makes it easy to care for. However, avoid sharp temperature swings from hot to cold or cold to hot as the pottery needs time to adjust to changing temperatures. Do not apply direct heat to the stoneware. It is suggested to bring frozen pieces to room temperature before putting it in the oven and to let hot pieces cool down before storing in the refrigerator. Following these guidelines will ensure that you will enjoy your beautiful stoneware for many years.
