This place has beautiful pottery for sale, even jewelry made of clay. What's more interesting is that you can actually take classes in pottery making. That probably would not be an option for people from out of town, but if you live anywhere in the Tri-County area, or plan an extended visit, check out the opportunities to take a class.... More

My friend told me all about this place, we visited there after a Tour of Homes in a nearby neighborhood. Great trip! many of the fireplaces in the tour of homes were adorned with... More

We have such a rich history in Detroit. To be able to touch and purchase these works of art is a blessing. So many talented people we are so lucky to have this place teach us the history and the value of this legacy. I have never seen such beauty in one location!

In many of the Art Deco and Arts and Crafts buildings and homes in the area, you will find the stunning Pewabic Tile installations. They are still producing those historic designs, as well as very contemporary work. Be sure and stop by their facility to watch the artists at work, and to pick up a piece or two for your... More

This is off the beaten path. I went because I was very interested in Mary Chase Stratton and her glazes. Perhaps you have to be a bit of an art geek for this one. It is small and as one reviewer said, there is nothing for kids. However, I was thrilled to visit the site where she developed her amazing... More

I don't have that much to say since I only went to the gift shop. Sorry, but yawn to a tour of the factory. There are beautiful tiles and other ceramic knick knacks for sale at the store. It's a great place to buy a non-ironic souvenir from your trip to Detroit. The kiln is struggling and can use support.... More
