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.

Many Detroit buildings are festooned with these beautiful tile... 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!
