About
I am a wife, mother of 2 amazing boys and owner of Peacock Pottery. At Peacock Pottery we import and sell beautiful hand painted, handcrafted Polish Pottery from Boleslawiec, Poland.

If you are not familiar with the pottery, it is created using a lead free clay and painted with cadmium free paints. It is usable in the dishwasher, oven, freezer or microwave. Pretty enough for entertaining and durable enough for everyday use!
