Fused Glass Panels ‘Blossom’ by VandaCrafts
These charming fused glass panels made by VandaCrafts look like a finely painted picture. The beautiful ‘Blossom’ on the tree and bright green grass will bring the beauty of spring into the heart of your home.
Vanda & Peter take their inspiration from their love to trees, leaves and flowers and how they change through the passing seasons and under the arc of the sun.
Handcrafting these panels is painstakingly slow, as layers of different coloured glass are fused over several days, with each and every leaf and petal individually applied by hand. It’s well worth the wait as the end result is amazing!
A perfect masterpiece for your home!
NB:- Please note that due to the handmade nature of this piece slight variation will occur between pieces.
Fused Glass Panels Artist
Vanda and Peter Smyth are self-taught glass artists. Originally, they both came from differing working backgrounds; animal welfare (Vanda) and advertising and digital media (Peter). They decided they wanted a change in pace and lifestyle and to explore their artistic passion instead.
Vanda has painted and embroidered from a young age, creating beautiful textiles of woodlands and hedgerows. They were both drawn to glasswork due to its ability to absorb, transmit and reflect light like no other medium. So, they switched on the kiln in their home-based studio eight years ago and haven’t looked back!
The lovely countryside around their home in Arundel, West Sussex is a constant inspiration for Peter and Vanda. Therefore, their art echoes their love of trees, foliage and flowers. Capturing how the countryside changes and interacts with the light of the sun and the passing of the seasons.
Every single one of their beautiful free-standing glass art is a labour of love. It takes at least four days and many glass-working methods to make the final piece. It is an intricate and painstaking process, but the results speak for themselves.
Many galleries across the UK stock Vanda & Peter’s glass art. Additionally, their work has featured in many exhibitions across the south of England and internationally.
