Are you a baseball fan? Maybe the Detroit Tigers are your favorite team. If this is the case, or if you know someone who is a diehard Detroit Tigers fan, you can now purchase a unique Detroit Tigers D tile. This decorative piece of pottery is printed with an old English D to represent Detroit’s finest baseball team. The best thing about this tile is that it is officially licensed by the Major League Baseball (MLB), making it the perfect gift for any Michigan baseball fan. The tile cost is $35 and can be bought at Pewabic Pottery Museum Store. With both the playoffs and the holidays coming up, it’s the perfect time to get a hold of Pewabic Pottery to purchase this commemorative pottery piece. Purchases and donations made through Pewabic Pottery help the historic Pewabic Society support the ceramic arts education of disadvantaged and underprivileged children in the Detroit, Michigan area.
Pewabic Pottery is an institution that has a lot of history behind it. This company was founded over 100 years ago in 1903. The owners, Mary Chase Perry Stratton and Horace Caulkins, created pottery that was renowned nationwide. Many of the items produced by these two entrepreneurs can be seen in museums and churches all over the United States. A few years after Stratton died, ownership was transferred to the University of Michigan, and later to the nonprofit Pewabic Society. Since then, the Pewabic Society has worked to restore the design and fabrication program.
Keep the Legacy Alive Fundraiser
The Pewabic Society is now holding the Keep the Legacy Alive fundraiser. This fundraiser is designed to collect funds for Pewabic Pottery. They hope to use the funds for fabrication kilns, any installation costs, and kiln-related equipment. This equipment will serve to help the Pewabic Society continue their outreach programs. Pewabic Pottery is involved in educational ceramic arts programs with the underprivileged students from Detroit Public Schools, as well as children at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. These programs reach thousands of disadvantaged children every year. Every dollar given will be matched up to $70,000 by the Shirley K. Schlafer Foundation to help Pewabic reach its goal.
