For the Creative
Ever look up at the technicolor ceiling at the Guardian Building? Remember riding the People Mover and seeing that tile mural that looks like it came straight outta The Wiz? These tiles were created at Pewabic Pottery- a unique school and studio combo.
Pewabic is known for producing this style of ceramic art which adorns countless buildings throughout Detroit and beyond. Lucky for us, it is located within city limits and welcomes visitors daily.
Learn about the process during a free guided studio tour or browse through the collection in the retail space. Don’t forget to check out the adjacent showroom and take a peek at the gallery upstairs.
