Can anything beyond Spectacular describe this design? Simply a Masterpiece! Meticulously designed by the artist, it is truly a one of a kind. Don't be afraid to use it however, but it would be a shame not to display it as well. Wonder why it is the cost that it is? Think of the hours needed to hand paint this design. Remember that there is no mass produced method, it is all done by hand in the traditional way that has been done for centuries. Then think of the costs of shipping and handling to import it to the U.S., with customs and duty fees as well.
This is truly usable art that you will use for your lifetime and then hand down to your children.

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.
