About Guilday Glass
In 1994 while recuperating from a motorcycle accident, a physical
therapist suggested stained glass as a hobby / therapy that would
help to recapture the lost dexterity of my fingers. One operation
lead to another with a lot of down time in between. One day while
recovering I watched a PBS program that explained the basics of
stained glass. Thats all it took
I was hooked. I called
my friend Don and we went out that day to buy everything Id
need to start creating. All that remained was an idea
of what to make.
Later while attending a retrospective at the SFMOMA (San Francisco
Museum of Modern Art) I was inspired by an artist named Sol LeWitt.
My signature Guilday Glass designs are a direct result of my exposure
to his interpretation of abstract expressionism in contemporary
art. His use of primary colors and simplistic shapes to create works
of art that are complex and satisfying was all the inspiration I
In early 2001, with the help and encouragement of my wife Patricia,
I left my job with Charles Schwab & Co. Inc. We moved from beautiful
San Francisco, CA to quaint Walpole, MA, and fulfilled my dream
of opening my own business
Guilday Glass. Today having fully
recovered from those injuries Im still in therapy,
and have turned my much loved pastime into a successful business.
Thanks to everyone that helped make it possible.
