Pewabic Pottery was started in Detroit, Michigan by Mary Chase Perry Stratton in 1903. Pewabic Pottery remains one of the few original American art pottery companies still in existence today. The early work of Pewabic Pottery consisted mostly of arts and crafts style pottery in matte green, yellow, brown, and blue glazes. Later Pewabic Pottery developed a variety of flambé and iridescent glazes for their vases and art tiles, which ultimately established the company as a recognized leader in the American arts and crafts pottery movement.
In 1961, Ms. Stratton passed away. After Ms. Stratton’s death, Pewabic Pottery was turned over to Michigan State University in 1966. The University operated Pewabic Pottery as a studio school and continued producing art tiles and vases. In 1979, the private, nonprofit Pewabic Society was established to administer Pewabic Pottery. In 1981, the ownership of Pewabic Pottery was transferred to the Pewabic Society. The Pewabic Pottery board of trustees continues to serves as the Pottery's governing body.
To this day, Pewabic Pottery continues to produce high quality, investment grade, arts and crafts style art tiles and vases that represent both reproductions of the original molds and glazes as well as adaptations of its historical arts and crafts designs.
Many of today’s collectors are using Pewabic art pottery tiles as decorative art for kitchens, baths, children’s bedrooms, offices and much more. Some collectors prefer to hang Pewabic art pottery tiles unframed or if desired, the tiles can be framed in mission style frames. Either way, Pewabic tiles offer a unique, investment quality, decorative arts addition to your home and office.
