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.
Senzo was born on the 12th of October, 1990, and is the only son of Bonnie Ntshalintshali.
He grew up in Winterton and attended Mountain View Primary School and Sizathina and Hlabani High Schools.
After the sad loss of his mother, Bonnie, his grandmother, Janet Ntshalintshali, looked after him.
Senzo says he came to Ardmore to continue the legacy of his mother. As a child, he would make small cows out of clay with his friends. He is now a sculptor at Ardmore and is showing potential. Senzo loves the fact that there is constant creativity at Ardmore.
Fée Halsted says Senzo has the same careful consideration that his mother Bonnie had, and under the guidance of his relatives, Somandla and Christopher Ntshalintshali, he will develop.
His works have already been exhibited at the Charles Greig ‘Parrots and Pomegranates’ show in Hyde Park, Johannesburg, and Ed Pascoe’s show at the Pascoe and Company Gallery in Miami, Florida.
Under the mentorship of Bennet Zondo, Senzo has diligently worked to perfect the human figure and become known for his work on the Riders Series.
In 2016 he exhibited beautiful works at Ardmore’s ‘Kalahari Cats’ exhibition in Cape Town, ‘The Great Zambezi’ show in London, ‘Celebrating the Year of the Monkey’ at Charles Greig in Hyde Park, Johannesburg; and at the 2017 ‘Great Zambezi’ exhibtion in Cape Town.
