An exhibition of new glass by Jarred Wright and Di Tocker
Fluid Practice refers to the fluid motion of glass as it is heated, via a torch by Jarred Wright and flowing from the crucible into the mould in Di Tocker’s cast glass works. A title of multiple meanings, Fluid Practice also references the many years both artists have worked with glass each in different ways, and how both Di Tocker and Jarred Wright have adapted their practice as they traverse their own pathway using glass.
Jarred Wright
Jarred is a glass artist from Christchurch currently living in Brisbane; he trained under the British Society of Scientific Glass in the microbiology and chemistry department at the University of Queensland in Brisbane. Jarred finds influence in the natural forms that appear under the microscope in the sciences and he also maintains an affinity to the unique flora, fauna and artistic styling of his home land, Aotearoa. All of Wright’s work is shaped by hand (and mouth) while molten hot in the old tradition of bench torch glass blowing techniques.

Di Tocker
Di focusing solely on casting glass, working from her purpose-built studio in Cambridge. Di was fortunate to discover her love of glass at the early age of 18. Since then, she has always created works in glass – as a competent hobbyist, which lead her to a full-time career in 2-dimensional glass. Di completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (major Glass) in 2002 at RMIT University in Melbourne, where she discovered a penchant for 3-dimensional forms. Di has been in full-time practice casting for 12 years developing her own personal narratives within figurative and abstract forms.
