Angelo’s creative life began under the instruction of his father, Alphonse Ambrosia. These first acquired skills, woodworking, photography, and black and white film processing laid a firm foundation for what would become a never ending fascination with creating beautiful art. As a young man, Angelo began working with clay. He learned to use the wheel and to make simple vessels. While attending college in Prescott, Arizona Angelo continued working in clay, shaping his ideas in functional and one of a kind art. After college, Angelo moved to Lopez Island, Washington to continue his education in life. There, he learned to build kilns, fireplaces and buildings working in clay and stone. Here, he also did great deal of experimentation in firing techniques and exploration of forms.
In 1999, Angelo moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico to continue his work in ceramics. He began producing ceramic art for the retail and wholesale markets. In addition to this work, he joined a team of artists and craftspeople on several large public art projects around the Santa Fe area. After several years in Santa Fe, Angelo moved to Longmont, Co where he was to find the art of glassblowing and this has been his passion ever since. Angelo believes that quality art, both functional and sculptural should reflect emotion, creativity and craftsmanship. Angelo’s work is available through him directly and at the gallery.
