My Glass Bio

My name is John Boyd. From my studio in Burlington, VT, I design and build stained glass windows, panels, and lamps -- and repair windows or lamps that have encountered baseballs or other mayhem.


Inspired by an exhibition of windows from Canterbury Cathedral in England -- seeing how they looked before, during, and after restoration -- I took beginner lessons in a studio more than 30 years ago.  I pursued stained glass as a hobby for many years while working as an editor and publisher. More recently, glass has become a full-time occupation that brings me great joy!  As I build new things for my clients, I continue to learn every day about good design, solid execution, and the great stories that can be told in glass. This site displays custom pieces I designed and built for clients, as well as pieces you can purchase right now!
