Pewabic Pottery

10125 E. Jefferson Ave.
Detroit, MI, 48214, United States
TEL: (313) 626-2000

In 1903, at the peak of the Arts and Crafts movement, Detroit artist Mary Chase Stratton invented an iridescent glazing process to create high-quality tiles, ornaments, pots, and vases that came to be known by the Chippewa Indian word for “metal,” Pewabic. Today, Pewabic Pottery is a nonprofit school, studio, shop, and museum that fills a gorgeous Tudor home. Would-be potters are trained in all techniques in classes, and collectors can find a superior selection of Pewabic pieces sold on the premises.


Tip: Head south on Lodge Drive to glimpse the 1928 Spanish Revival Manoogian Mansion, where Detroit’s controversial mayor lives.
