As a native Detroiter I've heard about Pewabic Pottery for decades but never really "got it". I saw a tile here and there and wasn't impressed. About a week ago we were downtown and decided to check it out and see what the fuss was about. Well, this little "house" on Jefferson Avenue is a great little tourist attraction! We... More

I love coming to this place. I love seeing how these amazing tiles are still made in this age old tradition. They still have a lot of the cast iron equipment used from ages ago. Seeing a kiln loaded up is amazing and the staff is always more than talkative enough to answer any questions. The gift shop area has... More

Pewabic Pottery is a beautiful real working pottery factory. They make all of their own clay and paints for their beautiful tiles and pottery. Many of the historical homes and buildings from Detroit's Golden Age have Pewabic Tiles in them and now you can own a piece of unique history for yourself. They do custom orders and every piece is...

This little shop contains a lot of artistic beauty and history of Detroit. Plan to spend time touring the facility and kilns that make lovely tiles and pottery. A "must" if you like pottery.

I can go crazy in this place! I have so many pieces ( tiles and vases ), that I have to rotate them. On the second floor is a " mini museum" with information about the founder, Mary Chase Perry Stratton, and pictures and historical info about the place with pictures. Many Detroit buildings are festooned with these beautiful tile... More

Love this place and can't wait to go back! I have purchased several pieces of Pewabic pottery and love it. The arts and craft design of so many pieces are beautiful. Viewing the various artist works was quite interesting and there was such a variety of pieces to enjoy. Can't wait to go back to add to my collection. There... More

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

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!
