Vanda Zebrak and husband Peter Smyth are self-taught glass artists working from their home based studio in Arundel, West Sussex. Their style is unique and their glass art has found its way to collectors across the globe. Vanda and Peter draw their creative inspiration from their love of trees, foliage and flowers and how they change and interact with the light of the sun and the passing of the seasons. Their work features the ever-changing woodlands as well as the beauty and diversity of the hedgerow.
