Next Step Studio & Gallery, located in Ferndale, MI, is owned and operated by Ceramicist Kaiser Suidan. The ceramic studio opened first, in 2004, and the art gallery followed in 2006. Since its inception, the gallery’s mission has been to seek out and represent young and upcoming talent that Kaiser felt deserved a wider audience. These artists are not only included in group shows at the gallery space, but also given the opportunity to attend and have their work shown at national shows such as SOFA Chicago and NYC. He continues to look for fresh talent and help new artists with their next step into the ever-changing art scene.
