George was born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in 1963, and trained at Mzilikazi Craft Centre. In 1986 after nishing his training, he worked as a thrower for several years producing functional items in Zimbabwe.In 2002 George headed South to seek employment as he was struggling to support his family. In Johannesberg he found work and in 2013 he joined Ardmore Ceramics as a thrower. He says, “I can make any design or shape and style. I like my work and enjoy what I am doing. I love everything that the Ardmore artists create as it has a message, especially the sculpting and painting. Combined with my throwing skills it creates very good team work. I am learning a lot about contemporary art and am now also able to make pieces with a message because of the knowledge I have from Ardmore.”Fée Halsted comments that, “George is a jovial character who is slowly enjoying a taste for sculpture and his smile is getting wider with his new-found personal achievement. George is now working as an artist, adding air and nesse to his forms and he is one of our key gures in the production. In 2013 George was chosen to design trinket boxes for Charles Greig jewelers which were highly acclaimed.
