Pewabic Pottery

Details

Pewabic is Detroit’s National Historic Landmark Pottery. Founded in 1903 by Mary Chase Perry Stratton and Horace Caulkins, Pewabic rose to popularity for its distinctive iridescent glazes and architectural tile installations. Today, Pewabic continues its nationally renowned design legacy as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to enriching the human spirit through clay. Visitors can watch staff artisans handcraft the latest designs using traditional techniques and a clay mixer dating back to the early 1900s; explore galleries of contemporary ceramic art from around the country; or take classes in the Education Studio.
