Artistic Stoneware: Pride of Poland

     There is nothing in the world like the Poland artistic stonewares. This country boasts of 750 years of non-stop pottery-making tradition. That can only mean that some of the finest pottery sculptors and designers can be found here - along with some of the most meticulous pottery designs.

For that, it is no wonder why one can find Polish potteries with plain designs and yet are so irresistible - there seems to be no reason why one should not pick one or two of these pieces. With regard to the more complicated designs, they are made with the most careful and unhurried sculptor strokes. From simple designs of stoneware plates, vases and bowls to the intricate designs of stoneware crosses, only the finest artistry and skills can be glimpsed from these Polish potteries.

From Finest Artistry to Excellent Functionality

Most stoneware users would not just consider designs alone. They would also like to have pottery pieces that are safe to use with microwave ovens, dishwashers and freezers. Obviously, this is the reason why those Polish potteries are the ones being used in those busy and familiar Chinese and Italian restaurants.

Aside from producing artistic stonewares, Poland pottery manufacturers are also proud of the quality of their products. Stoneware items have ceramic and clay as their base materials and substandard mixtures of these materials would render pottery products very susceptible to abrasives, water and chipping. Polish pottery makers know that the business competition is getting stiffer and so they make sure that their products will withstand external pressures - such as those that are mentioned - over long periods of time.

To ensure this kind of quality in their products, series of tests are done first. Different mixtures of ceramic and clay are tested until desired durability is attained. And since stoneware products such as bowls and plates are often subjected to intense heating or are used in cooking, Polish pottery manufacturers make these mixtures undergo extreme heating (and cooling) as part of the testing. This heating process makes Polish potteries perfectly resistant to chipping and scratching.

Some Other Things to Consider When Buying Polish Potteries

Most of these Polish potteries are expensive and therefore you must beware of cheap items. For one, these low-priced items may not be made of quality materials. Or for another, they may not be free of poisonous substance such as cadmium and lead. These poisonous substances are made to vanish from the mixture through heating - to temperatures as much as 1250 degrees Celsius.

Also, consider visiting Polish pottery websites. Check out for wholesale items and items that are on sale.

These are the things that you must consider, although you might also want to check if the company you will be dealing with follows environmental protection protocols. This criterion might not be important at all to some people.

However, having a good record in protecting the environment indicates that the company is reliable and one that cares. It is not only selling high-quality artistic stonewares for profit but is also putting premium on the good of other people.
