Glass Houses selected for Sculpture Prize - 23rd May 2019

Di Tocker's High Homes have been selected as a finalist for the 2019 Small Sculpture Prize at Waiheke Community Art Gallery.  Rueben Friend, Director Pataka Art & Museum selected Di's set of 3 cast glass houses as one of 30 finalists from a pool of over 60 entries.

Di says "The inspiration for these works cam from thinking about her own childrens' future and the possibility of (lack of) home ownership".

Referring to the ‘high hopes’ New Zealander’s have conventionally had about home ownership, elevated house forms sit atop lanky transparent columns. Is the kiwi quarter-acre dream disappearing as our population increases?  Will my children have to re-think what a home is?
Do we need to re-define community?
