Few materials have existed as long as clay. Ever since ancient times, people have been making the most beautiful creations from the material. It is not for nothing that Ann Van Hoey loves the ‘earthiness’, the fact that clay still has such a natural, warm color and appearance. To make something that feels so modern out of such a natural, centuries-old material, that is distinctive of the artist that Ann is. It is intriguing to see that due to her unconventional way of working, she succeeds in bringing history and future together in one work of art.
