Testimonials From Di Tocker's Clients

Here is what clients have to say about working with Di Tocker.

Peter and Kuljeet, Hamilton

Room and Embrace in the top-lit alcove

We were fortunate enough to be referred to Di when we had made some enquiries for a couple of meaningful pieces of artwork to display in our newly created top-lit alcoves. After meeting with Di at her studio in Cambridge we were greatly impressed with Di's passion for her artwork and the quality and depth associated with her individually crafted lead crystal pieces.  

Di was good enough to provide a very personal and professional service with a visit to our home with some of her pieces and we were able to get an insight into the concepts behind every item.

We quickly settled on two quite fascinating pieces from the "Room" and "Embrace" series which are perfect for the environment they are now a part of.

Thank you Di for helping us to enhance the look and feel of our home with your stunning work.

Best regards

Peter and Kuljeet


Jeanette Bullen, SOLGM - Annual Awards

Jeanette Bullen, SOLGM - Annual Awards SOLGM is the national membership society for local government managers. For 25 years SOLGM has run the SOLGM Local Government Excellence Awards® and in 2015, for the first time, we decided to hold a special Gala Dinner to recognise achievement in local government management and, in particular, celebrate the winners of these Awards.

We therefore wanted the physical award to be in keeping with the importance of the occasion. We commissioned Di and she was a pleasure to work with. In a very short time frame she designed and created a unique award that was perfectly aligned with our brief. Importantly for us, it was also very positively received by the Award winners.

Hi Di
Just to let you know that your lovely cast glass work arrived safely today and we are thrilled with it! Can't wait to give it to Mum. The dates you engraved on the crystal glass just make it.
Thank you for packing our commissioned glass piece so well too.
This personalised piece from your Paper People series will be treasured for years to come.
Kind regards

Trish Thomson, Hamilton

Trish Thomson, Hamilton I have purchased several of Di Tocker's cast glass kiwis for gifts because they are a beautiful piece of NZ glass art representing our country. These are now in Denmark, the USA and Iran.  More recently I have bought a couple of pieces for myself that I just love.

However, our first cast glass pieces we bought from Di were commissioned.  We did a major alteration at home with a feature alcove that needed something very special in it. Originally, I wanted an angel, as I had seen a stunning cast glass angel by Di Tocker at a friend's place. But after talking with Di, we came up with the idea of three unique crystal glass pieces to represent my three grown children. I chose colours that represent each child's personality, not to match the decor of the room. One day the children will get the piece of cast glass art that represents them. The glass pieces are always commented on when someone sees it for the first time, but they are more than glass art, they are a family heirloom.  
Throughout the commission process Di's communication was professional always.  I would totally recommend Di's glasswork to others. It is stunning, it has symbolism, it is high quality... I love my pieces and so do others.

"The NZCF Waikato Branch commissioned Di to create an artwork for our annual Construction Awards.

Di interpreted our brief perfectly and kept us informed all through the design and casting process. We were impressed with Di’s approachable and professional manner and her wonderful eye for detail.

It was a proud moment when the award (and miniatures) was revealed to our members for the first time. “WOW” is an understatement. We now have entrants lining up for next year’s event because they want that award in their office!"
