FUNK? Fired Arts started as Annie’s Mud Pie Shop around January of 1996. In 2004, as a student, Tom Funke (yes that is his real name) was looking for a place to continue his ceramic work. He came to Annie’s looking to take some classes and become more proficient in pottery. After completing a few classes, he began to teach hand building and wheel throwing to the students of Annie’s Mudpie Shop. Eventually, Annie told Tom that she was thinking of selling the studio and Tom could not stand to see it close. Less than 24 hours later, Tom decided that he was going to do anything that he could to purchase the studio.
