Fused Glass Panel ‘Poppy Field’ by VandaCrafts
This beautiful fused glass panel looks like a painted picture. It’s made by husband and wife team Vanda and Peter Smyth who pay attention to the finest of details.
Each piece is entirely unique and painstakingly created by hand. These items will attract many compliments for many years to come.
A single piece takes more than four days to create. Peter and Vanda use a combination of glass-forming techniques, full fusing, tack fusing, cold working and slumping. It is slow progress but well worth the wait!

Fused Glass Panel 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.
