I love arts and crafts pottery and Pewabic didn't disappoint. It was a bit out of the way, but worth the drive. Their pottery is pretty expensive, but really distinctive. Their showroom is small, but packed with vases, plates, tiles, etc. And they have well-priced jewelry, if you're looking for something smaller or easier on the budget. We tried to... More

It feels great to visit something made in Detroit. This historic venue makes pottery (tiles and vases) and has a school for potters. The museum upstairs was really neat. Makes me want to redo our whole house! Would not recommend bringing children here.

I went to an event here were everyone got to make their own tiles, and it was so much fun!! It wasn't very expensive and the people who helped us were very friendly and had a lot of knowledge about the pottery. We also took a tour of the place, which was very informational. I would definitely recommend checking this... More

I love Pewabic. Was here for the Gleaners fundraiser in February the community outreach was splendid and the art available was also one of a kind. A must go for anyone visiting Detroit, tiles are great for Kitchens and Baths!

They have a factory (the tiles are hand made) but even though the website said it was open when we got there it was not. All that left was a very small museum and a store. The tiles are very beautiful. If the factory had been open this would have been a worthwhile stop.

If you are visiting Detroit, a visit to Pewabic is a must. This is a part of the Arts & Craft history. Classic tiles dating back many decades, along with newer pottery by Michigan and other artists.

I love the art and craft tiles displayed and still produced at this museum. I have purchased many of tiles for my homes in Michigan and Key West. I love varieties of colors and styles produced there. Each tile is a work of art. Must see.

I had the pleasure of visiting Pewabic Pottery in Detroit. What a place. . . The site of a working ceramic studio/pottery/kiln operation, it is a nice, not-too-large place to visit in Detroit. I had not heard of it until my brother told me about it (He is a MFA in Ceramics). Cool old, well kept building. You can look... More

This place has stood the test of time and inspired so many other makers around the city. It was a beautiful little house to see (we didn't see the studio on this visit), and hard to choose which of the many beautiful things to buy and take home. I'm eager to learn more about Pewabic, and to see their tiles... More
