ANNIE DENNIS PEWABIC POTTERY

Pewabic Pottery is a National Historic Landmark, founded in Detroit in 1903 by Mary Chase Perry, a successful china painter, and Horace Caulkins, a dental equipment supplier and kiln manufacturer. Today it continues to be an active working pottery, architectural tile studio, ceramic arts education center and vibrant cultural destination that attracts visitors from around the world.

Annie Dennis earned a BFA from Western Michigan University in 2010 and an MFA in 2013 from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Annie is both an artist and an educator and is currently serving as education director and archivist at Pewabic. Her personal work evokes feelings of serenity with an earthy, natural palette and pleasingly repetitive carved details.

The nonprofit Pewabic Society Inc. operates the pottery and has expanded their initiatives to include education and museum space within its historic building. Many Pewabic products are still produced and sold at the site. Learn more at https://www.pewabic.org where you can also sign up to join the email list or become a member of the organization.

NOLAN FINLEY and STEPHEN HENDERSON

One Detroit is Detroit Public TV’s weekly public affairs program with two-way engagement between co-hosts Nolan Finley and Stephen Henderson.

The celebrated journalists have been longtime friends, despite their different perspectives on pretty much everything. The one thing they agree upon is the importance of their friendship, including a healthy dose of mutual respect.

The duo promotes bringing people of opposing viewpoints together for healthy disagreement, personal interaction, and constructive conversations, and friendship despite opposing views.
