The Great Zambezi

The world renowned ceramics of Kwa-Zulu Natal based studio Ardmore is coming to Cape Town this month with a new collection inspired by the Great Zambezi River.

Running through parts of Mozambique, Zambia, and Zimbabwe – birthplace of Ardmore founder, Fée Halsted – the river and its fauna and flora have been imaginatively realised in ceramics featuring hippos ridden by locals, elephants and crocodiles which evoke memories of the stories of Rudyard Kipling and Rider Haggard; troops of vervet monkeys chattering in the forest canopy and Flame Lilies and Scadoxis flowers interacting with colourful Narina Trogans and Angolan Pita birds.

‘The Great Zambezi’ exhibition will be staged at The Cellars – Hohenort in Cape Town from February 17 to February 19, along with The Cellars’ first view of a new range of wallpaper from the British-based company, Cole & Son. The company has collaborated with Ardmore to create the colourful range.

Ardmore is celebrating their Cape Town exhibition by giving away a unique piece from the Zambezi Collection. The ‘Lilac Breasted Roller and Passion Flower Vase’ is 56,5 cm high and 20cm wide and is sculpted by Kenneth Msomi and painted by Rosemary Mazibuko.

This competition is closed.
