“Welcome to Pewabic Pottery. How can I help you?”

“I want to take a pottery class.”

“That’s wonderful. Let me show you around.”

“Great. Who is in the picture on the wall?”

“She is Mary Chase Perry Stratton, our co-founder who started Pewabic Pottery in 1903.”

“Wow, a woman who did it 116 years ago.”

“Yes, when she was 36 years old. She studied art with the sculptor Louis Rebisso when she was 20.”

“Do you have anything she made?”

“We do, and pictures too. She lived to 91 years old and did many projects.”

“She is my inspiration.”
