Every dollar counts towards enriching our community with clay. A gift to Pewabic says that you care about ceramics and preserving a legacy of more than 115 years of making ceramics in Detroit. It demonstrates your commitment to this community, our educational programs and inspiring creativity in the next generation.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership organization, we depend on the financial support of individuals, members, corporations and foundations to continue our mission of enriching the human spirit through clay.
As we look to the future, our next endeavor is an exciting one for Pewabic – and for the planet that we all call home. We are investing in a solar electric system!
Can we count on you to help?
When Pewabic was founded, most of our customers arrived via horse and buggy. We still use our original clay mixer, which dates back to the early 1900s, but customers can now order online from halfway across the planet. We preserve a tradition of craftsmanship that extends back more than a century – sustainability is one of our core values! We want to still be making pottery and tile in Detroit a hundred years from now.
A new solar electric system will generate more than 37,000 kWh of power per year – harnessing the power of the sun to lower our energy expenses and dramatically reduce our carbon footprint. Thanks to a generous grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, we’re well on our way to making this happen. Can we count on you to help raise the necessary $42,000 in matching funds?
At Pewabic, we believe in a world made by hand, where diverse communities come together to celebrate creativity and self-expression.
Please join us in moving our historic pottery into the 21st Century with sustainable solar power with your gift today.
