– celebrating 150 years of Polish settlement in NZ, 1872 – 2022.
Polish migrants to New Zealand have a rich cultural heritage, including world-famous regional ceramic production which changed styles and ownership during political, economic and social upheaval. Polish stoneware originated as folk art in the early part of the eighteenth century in the province of Silesia. Hand-painted earthenware is found in Polish homes for everyday use and fine porcelain has graced royal courts in Europe. Objects of Polish pottery can be viewed in the Polish Museum.
