Full description
Explore the factory where they produce world famous polish pottery and see how it is done. This trip is popular among women who enjoy partnering style with their homes. For centuries, one of the premier art forms in Central Europe has been the pottery and ceramics created in the Silesia region of Poland. The durable and functional creamy white and blue stoneware pieces are unique and easily identifiable. Ceramics and pottery are a definitive part of the identity of the city of Bolesławiec, Poland, and the town itself is often called the "town of ceramics". It is impossible to talk about the town without talking about the ceramics that have been produced there for over a thousand years, and it is a matter of great pride for the inhabitants. Ceramic art has long been intertwined with Bolesławiec, a town located in Silesia and a historically disputed region of Europe. The ceramic works are referred to as Boleslawiec pottery, or sometimes by their German name of Bunzlau pottery or Bunzlauer pottery. There has recently even been a resurgence in the popularity of Boleslawiec ceramic art in the United States. The geography lends itself to ceramic work as the area is rich in natural clay deposits; the clay is still excavated today, and is of extremely high quality. It has a high feldspar and silicon content, and is classified as stoneware after firing. It is fired at extremely high temperatures, at approximately between 1,100-1,300 degrees Celsius. After visiting this factory you will have time to spend in some of the factory's shops, before your driver will return you back to Wroclaw.
