This year, we are asking for your help with a critical investment that will support Pewabic for decades to come.

We purchased our large Blaauw production kiln in 1999. Over the past two decades, the art this kiln has helped to create has enriched thousands of homes and community spaces. This indispensable workhorse has now come to the end of its life, and we’ve commissioned a new, 144 cubic foot Blaauw kiln to replace it. This $200,000 kiln will be even more energy efficient and reliable, and serve as our primary production kiln.

Please “light our fire” with a year-end gift to help build and install this state-of-the-art kiln.

Your gift today will go twice as far, thanks to a $70,000 matching grant from the Michigan Arts and Culture Council. Please give and help ensure that Detroit’s pottery remains a vibrant cultural treasure, enriching the human spirit for generations to come.
