Historic Detroit Pottery Stands the Test of Time

Pewabic Pottery Celebrates 103rd Birthday Today

In today's age of mergers and acquisitions, downsizing and ever-changing consumer tastes, it's difficult to imagine a company being around longer than 10 years, let alone fifty or seventy-five.

That a company could survive past 100 years is a rarity; one that only a handful of businesses statewide have achieved.

Pewabic Pottery, an organization conceived and brought to life in a small stable on John R., celebrates its 103rd anniversary today.

Congratulations, Pewabic, on this milestone achievement. May your continued commitment to the field of art bring you another 103 years of success.

Pewabic is celebrating its milestone achievement today from 11 am - 3 pm with guided tours of the facility, along with demonstrations of tile-pressing and wheel-throwing. Cake and refreshments will also be served. Pewabic is located a mile and a half east of Belle Isle at 10125 East Jefferson in Detroit.
