Visit Polish Pottery Festival in Boleslawiec, Poland in 2013!

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Every year, in late August, in the small town of Boleslawiec, located in the Lower Silesia region of Poland, about 120 km west of Wroclaw, Polish Pottery Festival transforms this town into an outstanding place of joy with live shows and beautiful crafts. Everything to celebrate the most famous ceramics from Bolesławiec, and perhaps all of Lower Silesia – Polish Pottery!

Hand made pottery from Boleslawiec is completely different from the pottery you will find in Italy or France. The tradition of making pottery in the region of Boleslawiec goes back hundreds of years. Today, white clay is chosen carefully and baked in high temperature kilns. As a result, you get unique pottery, which is flame proof, can be used in a microwaves, and looks great in your dining room. Pottery from Boleslawiec is also ecologicaly safe, because lead free enamel is used for decoration. Most patterns are detailed, geometrical and floral designs. Each piece is completely different than another, all are hand made, unique, worthy to be collector’s item.

Large baking dishes are often sold for little money (and you can always bargain!). You will be surprised that in Boleslawiec you can purchase pottery using US dollars! This is because pottery from Boleslawiec is very popular among US military personnel from Germany. So when you will visit the Polish Pottery Festival you will meet surprisingly many Americans. Communication with vendors is also not a problem – most of them speak English very well.

There are a lot of activities during pottery festival even in the night (source: Boleslawiec Culture Center).

You can also visit pottery museum, and pottery factories (where you can paint your own piece of pottery during a hands-on workshop), as well as many historical landmarks in Boleslawiec, for instance beautiful town hall.
