Viewers of Craig Fletcher’s work believe they are looking at the actual object, be it a pebble or seaweed without realising they are the creation of a ceramicist. His plaques are low-relief sculptures washed with watercolour, occasionally highlighted with gold leaf.
They begin as a pencil drawing on paper, then drawn onto a slab of clay. Up to fifteen impressions are made in the clay so destroying the original, are fired, emerging from the kiln pure white, ready to be painted by Craig.
Craig arrived from England via Australia and moved from Christchurch to Auckland. Craig has received awards from the print industry and the artts community. Lately he is into jewellery making.
