This wonderful special edition Pewabic "DIA Postcard Tile" was created through a partnership between the Detroit Institute of Arts and artists at Pewabic Pottery, a National Historic Landmark Detroit pottery.
The DIA Shop is honored to have been a part of bringing the "DIA Postcard Tile" to the market.
The tile features an artistic rendering of the iconic front facade of the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Founded in 1885, the museum was originally located on Jefferson Avenue, but, due to its rapidly expanding collection, moved to the current site on Woodward Avenue in 1927. The Beaux-Arts building, designed by Paul Philippe Cret, was immediately referred to as the "temple of art." Two wings were added in the 1960s and 1970s, and a major renovation and expansion that began in 1999 was completed in 2007.
The hand-pressed and hand-glazed tile features a two-tone glaze palette.
Slight variations in glaze and firing results ensure each handcrafted Pewabic piece is one of a kind.
Pewabic logo stamped on back.
The tile comes ready to hang or can be displayed on a stand.
Dimensions: 7" x 5" x 0.75"
Handcrafted in Detroit.
Perfect for fans of the DIA, art, architecture, and Detroit!
