Alice Hill

Alice Hill originally from the United Kingdom is a glassblower by profession.

She had studied Art Design for two years at Farnham Art College in Surrey, United Kingdom, before deciding to pursue a degree in three-dimensional design specialising in glass.

“I completed my two year post graduate course in the technique of glassblowing from the famous Brierley Hill Glass School in the West Midlands, United Kingdom.”

In 2003, Mrs Hill moved to Fiji with her family.

“We had set up and ran a scuba diving business for nine years,” Mrs Hill said. In 2013, she says they opened Hot Glass Fiji – the first hand blown glass company founded by her and her husband Alex Hill.

Hot Glass Fiji is based in Korotogo on the Coral Coast.

Mrs Hill was the event organiser for the inaugural Loma ni Vale exhibition that was held at the Grand Pacific Hotel from December 11 to 15.

 

What’s one place you’d take every visitor to in Fiji and why?
Sigatoka Sand Dunes.

This has been a special place for us and our family.

We have been visiting the national park for 17 years. Our children have grown up running up and down the dunes and walking through the national park mahogany forest.

What’s your favourite place in Fiji for a pie/coffee?
Hot Bread kitchen in Korovou town when you are driving up early morning to catch a ferry from Natovi landing.

You pop into the bakery there before driving on down to Natovi as the sun rises over Ovalau.

 

What’s one Fiji spot on the top of your bucket list?
The Southern Lau.

I have heard too much about it, the crystal-clear waters and amazing diving.

I am hoping to visit some time in 2021.
