Pewabic Pottery

Pewabic Pottery

10125 E. Jefferson Ave., Detroit, MI 48214

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.
