Buddy Smith

What started as a hobby back in 1974 became my life's work in the summer of 1982. I left my teaching job at Saint John's Prep School in Guam and ended up at the Condon Studios in Cambridge, MA. Here, the work was mostly restoration of the old stained glass windows in the Boston area. When we weren't on restoration jobs the work consisted of commission glasswork for homes or business. In December of 1984, my wife Sally and I made our way to the north county of San Diego where we have been ever since.
Most of my work is residential but I have done a number of churches in the area as well as other work for public buildings. What I am most proud about my work is that when I finish a job when I step back from the installed piece, the work seems to work seemlessly with the architectural surroundings. It has become one with the architecture. That is the essence of what should be happening . It should not be so overwhelming so it stands out from the rest of the room but to be part of that room. Never done for the sake of having something there but done because it works there. That's what I strive for and is what I get..
