Pewabic tile is a crown jewel of Detroit. Many of its grand buildings and churches were built with it. The tile has been in production for over 100 years and the facility is still in use on East Jefferson and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. The unique hues of these tiles were created by Mary Chase Perry Stratton. This harp-playing angel is embedded in the floor of the Cathedral Church of St Paul's on Woodward and Warren. Hark! The herald angels sing....Glory to the newborn King.
