The combination of beauty, functionality and durability make this high-fired, hard-working pottery a faithful servant in your kitchen. You will be amazed at how easy it is to cleaneven baked on foods wash off easily.


History of the Stoneware

The present high quality of the pottery comes from centuries of work by European artisans. Pottery has long been crafted in the same area of present-day Poland because of rich deposits of kaolin—fine white clay. The area has been occupied by Germans, Russians, and now Poles, which explains the multi-cultural appeal of the stoneware. Farmers originally made pottery in the winter, when it was too cold for outside work, for use in their own kitchens. The first designs were inspired by the peacock feather and earth tones, primarily using the colors of cobalt blue, sage green, and brick red.

The Process

This fine stoneware is made of white clay, fired at temperatures in excess of 1350 degrees centigrade. The high firing temperature insures that this pottery is extremely durable and will not crack or chip easily. Today, artists decorate these pieces using the same unique punch or stamp technique used for centuries. Each piece of pottery is crafted as a singular work of art and retains the charm of old masterpieces. Highly accomplished artisans earn the privilege of creating their own work to best showcase their talents. They sign this work and it is stamped "UNIKAT." Translated, this means simply "unique." UNIKAT pieces are rarer and more artistic in design, therefore command higher prices.
