 One of the distinguishing features of Ceramika Artystyczna's pottery is the use of intricate designs and patterns, often incorporating floral or geometric motifs.

These designs are typically hand-painted onto the pottery using a variety of colors, which can include shades of blue, green, yellow, and red.
