NEW TIMES: What inspired you to create a pottery studio?
SULLIVAN: In my 30s, I took some pottery classes as well as becoming an art instructor for an independent charter school. After a few years of instructing, I realized that no one had an art studio at the time, and that’s when I decided to open mine.
NEW TIMES: What does Anam Cre’ provide?
SULLIVAN: We provide an escape to create whatever your heart desires. We have a variety of calming music to help artists to find inspiration and provide an area where friendships can be forged.
NEW TIMES: What is one of the most eccentric or creative pieces you’ve seen in your studio recently?
