Products by Annika Hoefs

Annika is a Toronto-based artist specializing in wheel-thrown and slip-cast ceramics. Her interest in clay began while she was studying Textile Design at the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU). After graduating in 2013 with a Bachelor of Material Art and Design, she worked in several studio spaces in Toronto before returning to OCADU for a Postgraduate Certificate in Industrial Ceramics. She currently works as an instructor and studio technician at several locations in the GTA and has been creating her work out of the Mississauga Potters’ Guild since the fall of 2016.

Annika’s initial education in textiles helps to inform her design choices when it comes to elevating the surfaces of her work. Her forms often reference modern industrial and architectural design, featuring smooth surfaces and a combination of angles to create an ideal space for patterns to evolve.
