Teboho Ndlovu

Teboho was born on the 19th of December 1989 in Lesotho. He grew up in the Mokhotlong district and attended school at Sekonyela High. He is married with two children.

After his mother died, he left school to find work in KwaZulu-Natal and soon heard about Ardmore.

Fée Halsted says that Teboho is super talented and adds the skill and care to marry art with craftsmanship.

His magnificent, hand-coiled, organic shaped bowls have rhythm and balance, and he has quickly climbed the rung of the ladder to be amongst Ardmore’s best.

He has also found international acclaim. In 2015, Ardmore’s special artists were assigned to create 30 masterworks to commemorate 30 years of the ceramics studio.

Teboho created a large parrot bowl, masterwork number 10, which was immediately sold at the Charles Greig ‘Parrots and Pomegranates’ exhibition at Hyde Park, Johannesburg.

He also created a dramatic, storytelling piece that depicts the ‘chase’ between a leopard, monkey and a hoopoe, masterwork number 16, which found a home with another devoted Ardmore collector.

Teboho says his life has changed, and he is ‘now healthy because of Ardmore’, adding: “I would like to thank God with the talent that he has given me, also I hope God blesses Ardmore, together with its members and workers, and its customers for buying its work.”

In 2016 Teboho took part in the International Ceramic Fair at the Gallery of Amazing Things in Florida.
