Pewabic Pottery

Thursday, December 2, 7pm
Internationally famous, Pewabic Pottery originated in a stable in 1903. Horace J. Caulkins and Mary Chase Perry relocated their studio to an English Tudor building in 1906, now a National Historic Landmark serving as a studio, exhibit and event space. Pewabic Pottery is dedicated to handcrafted ceramics and tiles, many of which can be seen as architectural detail in major cities across the country, not just in the Detroit area.
