"Miss Perry's Pottery"

Classic shape and colors, Pewabic Pottery, Detroit, MI

The Pewabic pottery was founded by Mary Chase Perry Stratton in 1903 in Detroit and the building they built to house the pottery in 1915 is still being used today. They have a museum, they offer classes, and they run a retail shop out of the original building. It is the only arts & crafts pottery still in production in the Midwest.

Thanks for showing me something lust-worthy. I did not know about his pottery. Beautiful!

These are some beautiful examples of American pottery from Pewabic. Of course I prefer individual handcrafted pottery but since I am a potter I would be partial.
