Nondumiso Mfuphi

Nondumiso was born near Estcourt in KwaZulu-Natal in 1985 and was educated at Hlabane High School.

Her elder sister, Mbusi Mfuphi, who is a painter at Ardmore along with another sister, Fiko, introduced her to Fée Halsted, founder of Ardmore Ceramic Art.

Nondumiso joined Ardmore in 2003, and she quickly developed her own technique and style, loving to work in greens and reds and filling her floral designs with patterns and colour.

Fée says: “Nondumiso’s painting of high quality decorative collectables is an important part of Ardmore’s day-to-day success, as these popular works are much sought-after and enjoyed in homes across the world.”

Nondumiso is married to Somandla Ntshalintshali, one of Ardmore’s leading sculptors and nephew of Bonnie Ntshalintshali. They have four children.

Nondumiso is grateful to Ardmore for the independence and financial security she now enjoys, and has built a home for her family.
