Glazed Impression Studio

Located in the quaint city of Berkley, Glazed Impressions by Miles Stearn is the go to pottery studio if you are looking for a one of kind gift. When you enter his studio/gallery space you will always be greeted by Miles or his lovely wife Jill. They both are warm and inviting, and I have to say, never before have I witnessed an artist taking so much time to tell people about his work. Passion comes to mind. Here is a man who loves what he does and it truly makes him happy. Nothing like being impressed by an artist who is living the dream! About 2 years ago Miles bought the building and completely renovated it. "It was a huge mess, but Miles had vision and boy did it show", said his wife and partner in art Jill Kraizman. Jill also teaches art to 6 and 7th graders in Southgate, but whenever she can she is right by Miles' side helping make his art business thrive. And thrive it does. I was there for well over an hour and every customer that came in got the VIP treatment and almost always walked out with a one of a kind piece of Miles' pottery. If you are in Berkley, stop buy the studio. Miles also spends his weekends in the summer participating in art fairs across Michigan, including the Ann Arbor Art Fair. The studio is located at 3784 12 Mile Road in Berkley. Call ahead for open hours, 248-345-7169
