Di Tocker

Di is a full-time glass artist working from her purpose-built studio in Cambridge. Born in Auckland, 1971 and educated in Tauranga, Di was fortunate to discover her love of glass at the early age of 18. Since then, she has always created works in glass - firstly in leadlight as a hobbyist. Di completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (major Glass) in 2002 at RMIT University in Melbourne – this is where she discovered the method of lost wax glass casting and started to focus her work on the human form. Now most of Di’s work is focused on the human form, relationships and communication.

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 his work is shaped by hand (and mouth) while molten hot in the old tradition of bench torch glass blowing techniques.
