Amy Lee

Her parents say at age 2 all things rock and clay were a part of Amy’s nature and saved the photos of her rock-digging and mud pie explorations. While studying Environmental Science and Geology, Amy found respites as an assistant in both a water quality lab and the clay studio trading glaze-mixing chemistry knowledge for artistic skills with the ceramics studio instructor. After 27+ years in clay, Amy is still enamored by the tactile nature, the flexibility of form, and the abundance of decorating potential that this medium provides. When not behind a computer studying for her Master’s in Computer Science – she was in the clay studio. After 20+ years in the IT industry – clay is still her passion. A couple appearances on ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition in the 2000’s allowed exploration into the mosaic and tile realm with many private installations to follow. Her technical and creative expertise were put into practice in multiple co-op and business adventures. Wired both analytical/technical and creative, Amy enjoys combining technical expertise and know-how into her clay using laser printing techniques for textures, CNC for forms, and graphics design for printing-on-clay. To Amy, clay is where science meets art – forever an experiment.

While digging into my technical side to launch a site to sell creative items, I have thought a lot about the pros and cons that I have heard from other artists who sell their work online. I wanted to create a site that would allow a nicely curated group of artists to collaborate in a cooperative fashion similar to other co-op galleries I have been a part of in the past, but in an online format. I want to help remove the barriers to entering selling online for others and provide the customers who frequent this shop with new, exiting, uplifting, eye-brow lifter items made in delightfully small batches.

Jo Jessup








Hailing from the vibrant island of Trinidad and Tobago, Jo brings a unique perspective to pottery. She sees in clay a reflection of the human condition.
Armed with a BA degree and a passion for the craft, Jo infuses each piece with a profound understanding of the interconnectedness between art and life. Just as clay reveals itself through the artist's touch, Jo believes that it also mirrors the complexities of human existence - its resilience, vulnerability, and capacity for transformation.
From functional tableware to sculptural works of art, Jo's pottery speaks to the soul, evoking emotions and sparking conversations about the shared experiences that unite humanity.

During her time in service, she spent over 9 years overseas, including tours in Italy, Bahrain, Germany, and Iraq. She retired in March 2017.

She started taking lessons in 2011, and continued while stationed in Germany where she worked with Monika Armbruster. She learned to work with porcelain and experimented 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 work 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. To see her products click here.
