Big Surprise

Was not what I expected! The history, the craftmanship and things available for purchase are impressive for what is basicly a small shop.

This place is one of the great historical places in Detroit and not sure many people know it's here. I am a local and have wanted to visit there for along time. Finally got there and was not disappointed. Lovely samples of historical pottery as well as info on founders and glazes, etc. You can still buy tiles as a... More

On a recent family outing with out of town guests, we decided to check out Pewabic after the Eastern Market. The pottery is so beautiful and the building very quaint. I was here at Christmas and within the 6 months, there was new tiles displayed of Belle Isle and the Spirit of Detroit. Really a special treasure to receive something... More

what a great little gem in Detroit. The pottery is all made by local artists and reasonably priced. No charge just to visit

A trip to Detroit wouldn't be the same without stopping in at Pewabic Pottery. A mix of classic pottery in the Pewabic style and newer artists with their own flair. Always have to purchase an item or two. Christmas time they bring our ornaments that are treasures.

My wife and I do not even like pottery but we ended up spending a few hundred dollars here. Purchased decorations for our home.

Another Free event in Detroit! The pottery is classic and the tour was up close and gritty! The tour got a bit crowded since it was the last of the day, but the talent abounded and the story of the Founder was fascinating. Go Mary Stratton!

I used some historic Pewabic tiles in my house renovation and love having them, plus the trivets are great gifts. It's a fun destination and pure Detroit.
