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

Pewabic Pottery is a must-see in Detroit for anyone interested in pottery or fine arts. The Tudor revival style building was named a national historic landmark in 1991. The pottery was established in part by Mary Chase Stratton as part of the arts and crafts movement which made its way to the United States around the turn of the twentieth... More

I've taken pottery workshops at Pewabic Pottery in the past. This is an excellent opportunity for people to learn pottery skills from day 1 or to expand their skills at a professional level. I wish they would offer more classes in the daytime as it is next to impossible for me to drive to Detroit on a weeknight for a... More

Just when you think Detroit is nothing but abandoned plants and factories, you find Pewabic. A working museum you can walk through, with kilns, stamping machines, clay mixers, pieces in various stages of development, people willing to talk to you about their work, exhibitions, and a history detailing the role of Pewabic's founders and other developments in the history of...

Interesting to see the history behind the place but also the pride and artistic skills put into the tiles and pottery.

I purchased tickets, as well as a Pewabic Membership, for my daughter and I to attend the 2014 Raku Party. This was my 4th year to attend the event. Last November I purchased the series of three round half globe pottery wall art for a Christmas gift and several other items since that time. I’ve spent some money in the... More

I attended the 2014 Raku party for the first time on the advice of a friend. My friend and her daughter have attended these parties for four years in a row and she couldn’t say enough good things about the event – including how much she loved her Raku pieces and how gorgeous they all turned out. I thought I... More
