The city of Bolesławiec, located in Poland near the German and Czech borders, is at the epicenter of this artistic, pottery producing region. Since the 7th century, the Bolesławiec region has been making pottery for local use with mass production beginning in the 17th century. By the end of the 19th century, some Bolesławiec manufactures created new forms of pottery. These included color as well as a 'sponge' technique for decorating the pottery. After World War ll the Bolesławiec pottery industry's popularity exploded when the wives of the American Army personnel stationed in Germany discovered the artistically painted pottery and began collections of their own.
