Art is often used to express our views on the world surrounding us, and it is difficult to find a year that has provided more inspiration than 2020. With shocking news and surprising twists and turns, the Ardmore artists have taken inspiration from the characters and events that have shaped our world and let their imagination run wild to create the Mad Hatters characters.
This rat jug is an eclectic and characterful artwork. Our dreams and fantasies are often formed from the stories of our childhood and taking inspiration from the tea parties and carriage rides of fairy tales our artists have incorporated these characters into their artwork. The beautiful floral patterns that Zinhle has lovingly painted on the jug draw inspiration from the flowers that decorate the Ardmore garden.
