In the work of Belgian ceramic artist Ann Van Hoey, everything seems to originate from a flawless order and geometric logic. Even the origami-like incisions that interrupt the pure form of the circle or of the hemisphere express the will to reach perfection and contribute to a new purity, that of creation.
With deceptive ease, Ann Van Hoey succeeds in bringing about a new order and a new logic that are her own, the order and logic of a clear and pure line that seems almost compass-drawn, aiming for a technically impeccable result and an aesthetic that is as simple as it is seductive.
Ann has been awarded first prize at International biennal "At the moment...", Kapfenberg, 2009 Austria, Best Modelling Award at 1st China Kaolin Grand Prix for International Ceramic Art 2011, Jingdezhen, China, Silver Prize at Cheongju Craft Biennale 2013, Korea, Prize of the Presidency of the Emilia Romagna Region at the 'Premio Faenza', Faenza, 2015, Italy, and was a finalist in the Loewe Craft Prize 2018, to name just a few.
