This "Unikat" Circus Elephant design is adorable as well as useful. My granddaughter likes to use it to place her gum onto our's while she eats her snack, so that she may retrieve it when done. It can be used for tea bags, for toothpicks, for condiments, for horseradish sauces, for caviar along with many others.

In Poland there is a town called "Miasto Ceramiki" or Village of Ceramics. The town is Boleslawiec. For centuries they have created unique pottery made from the clay native to the region. The clay is fired to 1300 degrees Celsius. The pottery is painted and glazed stone ware that is fit for everyday use. This pottery can be microwaved, and heated. It is dishwasher safe, and does not easily chip, making it the most elegant durable sensible dish -ware on the planet!
BEGIN YOUR COLLECTION
When I began my collection, I started with a few pieces that I thought would match my decor. When I found my pattern, I then began to add to my collection one piece at a time, until I have built up an entire kitchen of the pattern that I have chosen. It took quite a few trips back home to acquire my set, and I am still adding to it today. Expanding to my bathrooms and so on. I tend to follow a particular artist named Jolanta Okraska. However this is my taste, and there are many artisans to view, and they are all very good.
The artisans that are regarded as highly accomplished, earn the right to create "Unikat" pieces. These are truly amazing, and because of their uniqueness, the amount of hand painting vs hand stamping, and the variety of colors used.
