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.
The rat nutbowl is an eclectic artwork that is filled with charm. The rat nibbles on her meal as her young climbs aboard her back for a ride, his tail draping across her nose. The detail Thandeka has added to the bowl with floral paintwork elevates this work of art to a whimsical Ardmore collectible.
