Pewabic is many things. To many people.

Pewabic is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit dedicated to enriching the human spirit with clay.


Our founder, Mary Chase Perry Stratton, was an innovator. In the early twentieth century, her experiments with glazes changed the face of contemporary ceramics. That spirit – her living legacy – is what drives Pewabic today.


Pewabic was founded in 1903 – and while many things have changed, our culture remains the same. We foster a progressive environment by celebrating new artists, exhibiting innovative work and offering opportunities to explore, experiment and invent.


We continue to redefine our role in the community through outreach and education, looking for new ways to make ceramics relevant and accessible to people of all ages and skill levels.

Like our founder, we are creating our next makers, artists and appreciators. And like our founder, we are progressing ceramics by inspiring, supporting and recognizing the contributions of everyone who takes part.
