About

Ann Smyth Stained Glass

From my 18th century studio located on the beautiful shores of Strangford Lough, I design and create stained glass for churches, public buildings and private collections.

In addition to my large architectural pieces, I also create small pieces of stained glass art enabling everyone to enjoy the magic of this ancient art form in their own home.

Using the same techniques as my stained glass pieces I also create unique pieces of jewellery. Making jewellery was not a conscious decision but rather something that evolved naturally.

Sweeping the floor of my studio one evening after a busy day I found a very beautiful, and very dead, butterfly. It was so beautiful and so perfect I couldn't bear to throw it out so I decided to preserve it in glass like the ancient tradition of preserving relics in reliquaries. This then led on to doing the same thing with other beautiful things I found, like tiny feathers and flowers. And so my "Nature's Reliquaries" collection was born.

I draw inspiration from my traditional training and love of medieval stained glass and also from the beautiful countryside that surrounds me which is steeped in history, myth and folklore. I then add a contemporary twist to create pieces that are both unique and timeless.

I love how the manipulation of light has such a profound effect on the senses and how sunlight hitting a carefully placed crystal or bevel has the ability to awaken the inner child in all of us.

    I have been working in stained glass for more than 3 decades now. I trained at Edinburgh College of Art and then travelled to California to work for 8 years. I then returned to N Ireland where I now work as a freelance stained glass artist.

    Allow me to introduce Gus. When he is not "rearranging" items as I photograph them, his main role is listening to all my creative ideas, never disagreeing and providing lots of love and encouragement at the end of a busy day.

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly.

WHY I NEED YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW I USE IT

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
- as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to Improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

- Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
- Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
- Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
