Nothing like this place in the Detroit area. I had often seen the pottery at other retail places but to visit in person is incredible. Great experience. I would highly recommend a visit.

I thought this was fun, and isn't far from belle isle. It's neat to see what's being produced now, and how everything came into being in the small museum upstairs. If you're into pottery, you'll enjoy it.

Upstairs there is an art gallery with rotating exhibits, as well as a small museum. Downstairs, you could take a self-guided tour through the manufacturing facility, and most of the artisans will answer any questions you have. The shop is terrific, and we had a difficult time leaving without blowing our budget. The vases we purchased have pride of place... More

See where tiles adorning the Guardian Building were made. Small museum and a shop to purchase current production. Special orders available.

Browse the gorgeous pottery in the shop and visit the museum and learn about the history of Pewabic Pottery. Some locals took me there when I was in town, I definitely want to go back and shop!

I was familiar with its history, drove past many times but just never knew it was there. There is a small museum, the artists can be seen working, they offer classes and they have a very nice shop.

Because of it's beauty and historical significance, I have been a long-time admirer of Pewabic pottery and tile. We finally got a chance to visit Pewabic Pottery this weekend and it was everything I hoped it would be. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable and we happened to visit on a day when they were giving tours. My three... More

I simply cannot believe that Pewabic Pottery is within an hour of my home and I just recently discovered it and so happy that I did. Absolutely beautiful things. My husband and I spent several hours just walking through the several rooms and galleries admiring all of the work. We purchased house numbers to install on our home and I... More
