Round Sculpture ‘Sea’ by Sigi Hil
A bold round glass sculpture sat in a ring of hand-forged iron, enabling you to stand the piece on a mantel or shelf or sunny window sill.
Made with multiple firings of a clear glass disc using frit balls that have been pre-fired to produce a textured piece that captivated the light and whose surface reflects the light in multifarious ways.
The multitude of firings gives both a pitted composition and depth to the piece with a colour hue that is gentle and beautifully understated.
Part of the Genesis series of Earth (Click HERE to see Earth), Sea and Sky (SOLD).
Accentuate your home décor with this artistic round sculpture. It will suit any room or hallway and deserves to take pride of place on a shelf or mantelpiece – anywhere it can be admired!

In 2005 after a 17-year career in International Banking, Sigi Hill decided it was time to explore a creative path. It was during a foundation course in Art and Design at the Chelsea College of Art and Design, that her interest in glass first sparked. She went on to study at the University of Creative Arts (UCA) in Farnham. It was here that she obtained a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Three-Dimensional Design specialising in Glass.
Sigi works from her studio in Hampshire, designing and making her inspired designs. Her work uses glass frit which gives her the flexibility to blend colours without losing their definition. The resulting part-fused, crystalline with smooth textures which are complex and intriguing. Sigi enjoys being able to create simple yet measured shapes which reflect her initial inspiration.
