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.
Thabiso Mohlakoana was born on the 24th January 1991 in Lesotho.
Thabiso’s brother, Thabo Mbele introduced him to the Ardmore family. He says that he would play with clay after watching his brother sculpt.
He came to Ardmore in 2015 and started sculpting small animals for eggcups and jewellery boxes.
