About

Welcome! Pewabic Pottery is a living treasure and offers visitors an exciting glimpse of a little known part of American history.  It was founded in 1903 by artist Mary Chase Perry Stratton for her studio and pottery.

Today Pewabic is a non-profit ceramic design studio, education center and National Historic Landmark. Welcoming over 40,000  local, U.S. and international visitors annually, Pewabic is open all year long.

It is Pewabic's mission to engage people in learning experiences with contemporary ceramic art and artists and to promote and preserve our historic legacy.

Visitors see a working historic pottery and can shop the Museum Store with Pewabic giftware and pottery made on site using Arts and Craft traditions and featuring its renowned glazes. Pewabic also supports over a hundred North American ceramic artists through selling their work in its galleries and exhibition program. 

A century-long legacy of designs and fabrication of architectural tile continues for hundreds of clients nationwide.

Pewabic also offers classes to adults and children and teaches ceramics in many Detroit and other local schools. Committed to  Detroit’s eastside revitalization, Pewabic is now expanding its campus.
