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.

This pair of elegant Crowned Crane Vessels was created by Qiniso Mungwe and painted by Wiseman Ndlovu. Qiniso has portrayed the cranes performing their ritual courtship dance and has used the wings of the cranes to enhance the lightness of the tall forms to which they are attached. Qiniso has added, at the base, crane chicks that mill about their parents’ feet. Wiseman, with his painting skill, has camouflaged the brood of chicks in amongst the grassy reeds and has almost hallowed these regal birds with a golden light that renders a somewhat spiritual scene.
This pair is at our 'The Pride of Africa' Exhibition this week.
