Craig Fletcher


Craig Fletcher has been working as an artist in New Zealand for many decades. He began his career in England with traditional sculpture in clay and bronze and won the Royal Equestrian Society’s sculpture award. A few years on, and a few moves later, his work has developed into low relief ceramic sculptures. These are over painted with water-colour, acrylic and some gold leaf. After the Christchurch earthquakes the family scuttled off to Auckland where he has continued to take inspiration from many parts of Aotearoa's dramatic landscapes and iconic wildlife. He makes his living by exhibiting in galleries throughout the country with ceramic and bronze art, as well as producing a range of prints and jewellery. His latest venture is a series of sculptured ingots cast in 999 pure silver which will be made to order by Regal Castings LTD. These ingots are being launched at the NZ Art Show online and represent artwork that literally has some currency. The original sculptures of the Tiger, Dragon and Rat are stuck at the casters due to Covid 19 but will be available for viewing soon.

He has high hopes for the future of the country in these strange times.
