From diverse backgrounds, they recognised in each other the true artistic skill to envision, create, produce and sell unique ceramic pieces. Their exuberant exotic style has been both locally and internationally recognised and Ardmores pieces have found their home in numerous art collections around the world. The studio has stayed close to its KZN roots and has trained and developed local artists, changing their lives. Ardmores highly collectable pieces are born in 3 main studios, each full of people carefully creating their current masterpiece. Each piece is conceptualised by the team, brainstorming and sharing.Inspiration comes from African proverbs, photographs of creatures and sheer imagination! In the first studio, the artists carefully mould the structures with clay, adding all the embellishments. In the second, the details are added tiny markings, patterns, textures and other fine details. In the third, the pieces are painted often using the wildest and brightest colours imaginable. This means that along the way, from conception to finished product, each piece passes between many hands, and thus each creation really is a team effort, The sense of comaraderie and love among the team is palpable a combination of gentle, quiet, passionate creativity. You can feel this in each piece, brings joy to any room. The item "ARDMORE CERAMICS Leopards-Monkeys bowl, art pottery palissy majolica AFRICAN ART" is in sale since Friday, July 5, 2019.
