Manufaktura, established in 1993, is a privately owned factory in Boleslawiec. Poland. It is one of the leading producers of handmade stoneware. It evolved out of the merging of the Smolensk and Zwierz families.


Manufaktura uses the native white clay and their specially developed glazes to insure the highest quality stoneware. After glazing, the second firing takes place. The combination of the special glaze and high temperature firing creates a surface exceptionally durable, highly resistant to scratching, chipping and wear.


The glazes are certified cadmium and lead free by the USDA. They are made with all natural products. All Manufaktura Polish Pottery is microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe.


Manufaktura and their potters are continually developing new pottery designs with more intricate motifs and patterns. However, the original designs with the repeating circles and dots, such as the Peacock and Mosquito, continue to be favorites.


With motifs that reflect the folk art tradition, Manufaktura Polish Pottery has an engaging combination of beauty, elegance, versatility and function. For all of these qualities, it is recognized throughout Poland, Europe and the United States as stoneware of the highest quality. Renditions is proud to offer

Manufaktura Polish Pottery to our customers.
