Our ceramics are made by local artists - ordinary people from the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, who are given training, materials, a studio and a guaranteed market for their work, under the guidance of our founder, Fée Halsted.
Nozipho Primrose Ntshalintshali was born on the 14th of July, 1994. She attended Mgwayeli Primary School.
Encouraged by her mother Jabu Nene, Nozipho came to work at Ardmore. Jabu Nene is one of Ardmore’s best painters and her daughter is showing signs of becoming another superstar with a flair for design and pattern.
Nozipho says that as a young girl, she used to sit next to her mother and watch her paint, which was the beginning of her following in her mother’s footsteps.
Nozipho adds: “I told my mother that I would love to be able to fulfil my dream of being an artist by working at Ardmore and educating my son.”
Fée Halsted says: “It is a pleasure to work with Nozipho and lovely to see the next generation joining Ardmore. Her loving care and fine detail make her work treasured jewels.”
