No reviews

We have run out of stock for this item.

The African Clawless Otter is sometimes known as the Cape or Groot Otter. They are the second-largest species of freshwater otters. Found near permanent bodies of water in the savannah and lowland forest areas, they range through most of sub-Saharan Africa. Their feet are partly webbed and are clawless - hence their name!

These whimsical and finely detailed candlesticks will be passed down for generations. Start a conversation about this fascinating creature!

Nkanyiso Mthulisi Ncube
Thrower/Sculptor Painter

Nkanyiso came to Ardmore in 2013 and quickly earned the nickname "Short" because he is so tall!

Mentored by Sfiso and Quiniso in the Ardmore sculpting studio, Nkanyiso studies the work of other Ardmore artists and dreams of being a teacher himself one day.

Looking at his remarkable work, we're sure that will happen.

Nkanyiso's work has been exhibited at several prestigious exhibitions, including the Harare Zimbabwe show at Patrick Mavros Gallery in London.

Mthulisi trained at the Mzilikazi Art Centre and worked as an artist, selling his oil on canvas paintings.

He was introduced to Ardmore Ceramics by his mentor, Mandla Ngwenya.

Mthulisi's work has been exhibited at the "Just So Crocodile and Other Curiosity" in Hyde Park (Johannesburg) and at "Safari Week" at the prestigious Patrick Mavros gallery (London).
