Annika Hoefs 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. 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 sharp angles to create an ideal space for patterns to evolve.

The majority of Annika's work is wheel-thrown, which means it was created on a potter's wheel. Throwing on the wheel takes a great deal of patience and muscle control. This challenge adds a certain excitement to the process and a great satisfaction when the goal is reached.
