Pewabic Around Town

"So happy to have finally toured Pewabic Pottery! This Detroit landmark has been on my bucket list for some time now. As we were told the history of Pewabic, we were guided through the lovely Tudor-style building that houses examples of the architectural tiles and ceramics. Also interesting is to see artisans at work and learn about the process. Be prepared, because you'll most likely want to buy a piece to take home with you from the store. Our tour also included a fun workshop where we made our own tile. The tour including the workshop was about 2 hrs."
