Find your (glass) figure - 20th Jun 2019

I have decided to sell my hand-crafted studio colour samples. Many of you have seen and admired these 29 figures that have been a fixture in my glassmaking studio. These colour samples, stand approximately 125mm high and are in the form of an abstracted figure. They were all uniquely formed, carved in wax then cast in Blackwood Crystal, and formed the basis for my figurative practice. No two are the same.

I am making way for a new sample set, and at the same time raising funds to purchase some new polishing equipment - a flat bed grinder will save me hours and also save my back!

You can purchase your new (glass) figure via the online store.
I can deliver or you can collect your glass from my Cambridge Glass Studio.

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?

Opens 24 May 2019
Until 23 June 2019
Gala and Awards Evening 31 May 2019

New Zealand Tourism Industry Awards on the go - 23rd Sep 2016

I have been working on these for 4 months now. - 13 awards for the NZTIA
 

From the TIA website;
From hot pools to hobbits and hotels, the finalists in the 2016 New Zealand Tourism Awards are a shining example of why this industry is enjoying record growth.

The 28 finalists will compete for awards in two individual categories and eight business categories, says Chris Roberts, Chief Executive of Tourism Industry Aotearoa which runs the annual awards programme.

“New Zealand’s tourism industry is enjoying rampant growth – it’s the country’s most valuable export industry and in total generates $30 billion in annual visitor spend.

“These prestigious awards celebrate the industry’s success and recognise the individuals and businesses doing an outstanding job, generating economic wealth and supporting jobs in communities throughout the country.”

Mr Roberts says the finalists showcase the industry’s diversity.

“They come from Paihia to Queenstown, range from big corporates to small, locally-based businesses and cover the many sectors that make up this exciting industry – from ski fields to campervan rentals to a tour company specialising in Chinese independent travellers.

“We have several finalists who have been in business for decades and others who have established themselves as industry leaders in a matter of years.”

The awards will be presented on the 30th of September at the Langham in Auckland. Until then I can only show you the glass...photos will follow after the ceremony of the awards complete with etched writing.
