Be on hand for the release of our latest Postcards from Detroit tile: the Guardian Building, Detroit’s art deco “Cathedral of Finance” skyscraper that features Pewabic Aztec-like tile designs above its Griswold and Congress Street entrances. The Guardian Building tile joins Belle Isle and Eastern Market, as the third in this series that commemorates favorite Detroit destinations.
 
Fall in love with Pewabic’s new scarab paperweight and new and reintroduced Egyptian-inspired giftware and architectural tile designs. Each makes its introduction on Pewabic’s special night, along with new glazes and glaze options to mark the 150th birthday of Pewabic co-founder Mary Chase Perry Stratton. And be on hand to buy some of our top-selling 3×3 tiles in Revelation Blends palettes — Corktown, Iroquiois, and Woodward — for those house projects on a tight schedule.
 
And check out our new and exciting education initiative on wheels: Pewabic Street Team, a mobile museum that will deliver clay experiences and raku firings throughout the city. And enjoy the opening of our annual Maker/Mentor exhibit, showcasing the recent works of Pewabic teachers, students and staff.
