It wasn’t written in the stars that Ann Van Hoey, born and raised in the beautiful Belgian city of Mechelen, would one day become a world-famous ceramicist. As a commercial engineer, Ann had a talent for mathematics and sciences, which she combined with a love for sports. Although she worked for numerous years in the furniture industry, she felt from the age of 25 on the call of the craft, of making things from the ground up with her own hands. In the following years, Ann became a loyal student of the IKA Art and Craft Academy in Mechelen where she discovered her interest in and talent for ceramics.
