Given the freedom to explore their creativity; through Ardmore the artists are given materials, training, direction, work space and a market for their work. Sadly in 1999, Bonnie Ntshalintshali, Ardmore’s founding artist, passed away; and in 2003 Fee established the Bonnie Ntshalintshali Museum to honour her co-artist and friend. In 2010 to mark Ardmore’s twenty fifth anniversary the company launched Ardmore Design Collection translating the company’s signature style into an increased range of ceramic products including dinnerware, in addition to fabrics, furniture and tapestries. Ardmore’s collectible South African ceramics can be found in galleries and collections all over the world, and many of the artists have won local and international awards, and have taken part in exhibitions.
