About Ardmore Ceramic Art Studio

This is a Highly Recommended Attraction!

The vibrant ceramics of Ardmore, ranging from functional domestic ware to sculptural art in the decorative African tradition, offer a fine insight into the subtle influences of rural potters at work in the Champagne Valley of KwaZulu Natal. These artists combine the elements of their tribal tradition with the uniquely naive perspective of a new world.

Although the nerve centre of Ardmore has moved to Lavendula in the Natal Midlands, the majority of the artists continue to work on the Ardmore farm near their family homes in the Champagne Valley.

On a clear winter day the Zulu artists can be seen enjoining the warm sunshine while painting and finishing their creations against the backdrop of the majestic Champagne Castle in the Drakensberg. Within the original stone cottages, the sculptures and throwers work.
