The next generation of Ardmore artists

Jabu Nene


This week we would like to honour Jabu Nene, who has been at Ardmore and working with Fee for twenty-three years. Jabu’s incredible painting talent is often paired with Somandla Ntshalintshali’s majestic and rhythmic forms. This urn has been created for our 2016 Zambezi Collection where Jabu, with her intricate and rich patterning, has truly elevated this vessel to masterpiece status.
