Di Tocker creates small figurative cast glass sculptures from her purpose-built studio in Cambridge, New Zealand.
Tocker began her career working with lead-light glass in both New Zealand and Australia becoming a designer consultant at a large lead-light manufacturer in Melbourne. In 2002 Tocker completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (glass major) at RMIT University in Melbourne.
Tocker uses the lost-wax casting technique, whereby a wax model is used to create a mold which is then lost during the glass casting process. After casting, Tocker polishes the numerous glass facets characteristic of her style leading to an almost gem-like finish.
