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.
Pitso Mohlakoana was born on the 1st of January 1986 in Lesotho. He attended Hlabanb High School in Estcourt until grade 8.
Before he joined Ardmore, he worked at NCT in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Pitso’s brother, Bennet Zondo, who is one of Ardmore’s top sculptors, introduced him to Ardmore in 2013.
Pitso is known for his diminutive, sculptural ability and fine craftsmanship. His animal angels are very popular as well as his work on jewellery boxes and small gift items.
