Hot Glass Fiji’s fantastic combinations of contemporary hand blown glass and traditional Fijian craft techniques and materials have swiftly made them a firm favourite for brides and grooms who are looking for original and stylish Fijian made gifts and favours for their wedding.
The glass blowing studio itself is perched on a hillside on the Coral Coast along Korotogo’s delightful Sunset Strip. The studio is a lovely place to visit with a fantastic view and the light and colours of the tropics that can be seen from the deck are reflected in the beauty of the pieces.
Gifts and favours can be bought at the gallery at the time, but many prefer to contact us beforehand to choose their own colours, designs, engraving and gift wrapping for a completely unique and personal gift.
For wedding parties, individuals and groups are welcome to come up and watch Alice and her crew as they create the pieces – glassblowing is an almost dancelike swirl of movement as the team blow, shape, reheat and cut the molten glass.
Hot Glass Fiji’s glassblowing experiences are a very popular option with wedding groups. For those keen to have a go themselves and making your own piece gives you a wonderful souvenir of your special moment in paradise.

What inspired you to start your business?
We previously ran scuba diving centres, but Alice is originally a professional glassblower by trade.
