     The photo contest was announced in our August newsletter, and the deadline for entries was August 31st. In total, we received almost 100 pictures. The deadline to submit your vote is September 15th, 2017. We will tally the votes and announce the winner in our October newsletter and here on this blog.

     Please submit your vote to contest@polishpotteryheaven.com with the photo entry number (located in the lower right hand corner of each photo) in the subject line. Please, only one vote per person, but invite all your Polish Pottery friends to join in and vote.

     Without further adieu:

I love so many pieces, some for the shape and others for the patterns. My favs are the pedestal bowls in 018 and 075, the tall coffee//teapot blue dot to dot in 055, the covered casserole in 061 and the flower vessel with a handle in 017. I love the cobalt blue dot pattern.

#18. Love the play of light.
I bought my small-belly-mosquito-mug in Görlitz a few years ago, when I went there with a close friend. My friend died unexpectedly some time later, so when dropped that cup on the floor and broke it, I was pretty sad about it. An internet search found your company and cup, and I am so happy to have a beautiful reminder of a happy time.

I vote for #78. I love how you can begin to purchase and use the mixed pottery pieces easily. When you see how wonderful they look together it makes you want to have more and more. My entire family is addicted to shoppiing the store now and sharing our heritage with Friends and Family.

After looking at all the entries, number 18 absolutely stuck in my mind. If this is a photo contest, then it really must be the winner, even though all the pottery is always an inspiration.

Who are these people, with their beautiful (and clean!) homes? I want to know them, smell their flowers, eat their wonderful food. I feel lucky to b part of the Polish Pottery community. My favorite picture is number 18. The light, the composition, and the simplicity spoke to me artisticlally.

This one would meet all the qualifications of balance, value and composition that is required to compose a painting. Several others would have met the criteria but for their lack of forethought about a competing background and poor lighting.

I am a quilter and find that putting different pieces of Polish pottery together is like mixing and matching fabric. The colors and “textures” in the patterns play beautifully off of each other. I love serving out of them.
