Sbusiso Ndaba

Sbusiso was born on the 15th of March, 1984. Sbusiso, the Zulu word for ‘Blessing’, is the son of Betty Ntshingila, one of Ardmore’s famous sculptors at Ardmore. After finishing grade 7 at Mountain View School, he was encouraged to join Ardmore in 2000 by Ardmore artist, Nhlanhla Nsudwane.

Says Fée Halsted: “Sibusiso is one of the most talented and creative sculptors Ardmore has seen. As a youngster he enjoyed coming to the Ardmore studio in the Berg, but his sporadic attendance indicated that he was not serious about his art. It gives me great joy to discover that our Betty is his mother and Sibusiso is back working in the clay room with us again. I now understand where his talent comes from.”

Sbusiso excels at reptilian and aquatic sculptures, imaginative teapots that always create interest at Ardmore’s major exhibitions and are snapped up by collectors.
