Our origins

Ardmore Ceramic Art was established by Fée Halsted on Ardmore Farm in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu-Natal. Today you’ll find the bustling studio and gallery in the picturesque Caversham Valley in South Africa’s Natal Midlands.


It's all in our process

The Ardmore A-spot

To celebrate Ardmore’s Voyage of Discovery, Senzo Ntshalintshali has sculpted this smiley-faced hippo carrying a basket of people off on an intrepid adventure in a hot-air balloon.

Siyabonga Mbaso has painted this happy sculpture, adding colour and intricate design to the balloon shape.
