Story of A Triumphant Recovery
In 1994 while recuperating from a motorcycle accident, Peter found his passion, a future in art. A physical therapist suggested stained glass as a hobby / therapy that would help to recapture the lost dexterity of his fingers. One operation lead to another with a lot of down time in between. One day while recovering, as he was watching a PBS program that explained the basics of stained glass, he found his creative path.
Later, while attending a retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, he was inspired by the work of Sol LeWitt. His signature Guilday Glass designs are a direct result of his exposure and discovery 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 he needed.
In early 2001, with the help and encouragement of his wife Patricia, he left his job with Charles Schwab & Co. Inc. They moved from beautiful San Francisco, CA to quaint Walpole, MA, and fulfilled his dream of opening his own business, Guilday Glass. Today having fully recovered from those injuries He has turned his much loved pastime into a successful business.
