The Studio Gallery is a small timberframe building nestled just off the main path to the iconic Presque Isle in Marquette, Michigan. After you pass under the train trestle to the still-functioning ore dock on Lake Superior, the little grouping of art studios appears on your left.
The Presque Isle Square was originally formed in the 70s & 80s, when Terry Gilfoy and Mike Horton acquired the old train depot and turned it into their ceramic studio. After that, they built the two adjoining studios and the small art community began.
The Studio Gallery became the home of Niik Creative Co. in 2020, when Niikah Hatfield purchased the Revisions Design Studio business from founder Michele Dupras. After studying with Michele for a number of months, learning the production processes and backside of the business, Niikah took over the operations of the studio and rebranded with her own company.
The summer of 2022 marks the second summer season of Niik Creative Co., with the team continuing production of the line of handmade porcelain ceramic planters, lighting fixtures, and home goods. Each piece is crafted, fired, and finished in the studio.
Continuing the legacy of handmade arts is a pillar of the work in the Studio, which also includes handmade goods from other local artisans including Sakra Atelier, Kalil Zender Metalsmithing, and Aura Design Co.
