About the instructor:

Angela is a 26-year veteran of the United States Navy, attaining the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer. During her time in the service, she spent over 9 years overseas, including tours in Italy, Bahrain, Germany and Iraq. She retired in March 2017.

After a deployment to Iraq, Angela discovered pottery, and it changed the trajectory of her life. She started taking lessons in 2011, and continued while stationed in Germany where she worked with Monika Armbruster, learning to work with porcelain, and experimenting with Raku, a technique involving heating and handling pieces at 1800 degrees fahrenheit and then creating a reduction environment in order to achieve unexpected surface decoration on pottery.

Upon returning to the United States in 2014, Angela continued her journey with ceramics and began teaching beginning wheel classes at the D’Art Center, and The Hermitage Museum and Gardens. By 2016 Angela started selling pottery she created at shows and in galleries. Her personal worked is marked "Angeltil Pottery." In 2018 Angela started a new venture, opening All Hands Pottery Studio in Norfolk, Va. It is important to her that her studio welcomes people of all skill levels, all backgrounds and all walks of life. She is a believer in the therapeutic and healing properties of clay and art in general, and wants to bring that experience to all who are open to it.

You can find her studio on the social media platforms of Facebook and Instagram.

Angela is also a member of the Ceramic Designers Association of Virginia. She is passionate about art, community outreach, and volunteerism.

Angela lives in Norfolk, VA with her husband Mark and their three rescue dogs, Nancy, Brian and Gunner.
