ANN VAN HOEY – The Reinvention of the Pottery Bowl

For at least a year now, the name of the Belgian ceramist Ann Van Hoey has been cropping up with great regularity among those selected to exhibit in international competitions. It appears logical to deduce from this that after 30 years in the confines of her studio, innumerable placements and workshops, this 52 year-old lady has decided to go public with her work, which appeals to international juries, her colleagues and observers alike, fascinating and captivating them. Incidentally, Ann Van Hoey is a trained mathematician and has graduated in industrial engineering. As you will see later, I mention this here not only for the sake of completeness.
