Living History

Wellington artist Richard Stratton presents a series of new work that continues his interest in bringing together ceramic decoration and production techniques, art histories and social narratives.

This exhibition explores how Stratton’s well known, intricate teapots and figurative representations have evolved into enigmatic, sculptural forms.

About

About

I am a ceramic artist with a keen interest in historical techniques.

Richards work has been exhibited widely in New Zealand and overseas, and his works are included in private and public collections notably Te Papa Tongarewa, The Dowse Art Museum and the Real Art Road show.

Richard’s ceramics have always responded to industrially produced press moulded and heavily ornate 18th century ceramics. Historical form and technique are critical to his works imaginative generation and meaning.
