Caithness Glass was founded in 1961, in Wick, North East Scotland, by Robin Sinclair. They first started out making Art Glass and with the arrival of Paul Ysart in 1962, started to produce paperweights.
Colin Terris joined the company in 1968 and produced some of the first modern style paperweights like the Planets set.
Paul Ysart, Colin Terris and Peter Holmes were some of the early designers making innovative millefiori paperweights during the 1970’s.
By 1993, 44 designers made paperweights for Caithness, with over 2,300 designs being produced. There were limited and unlimited editions produced, with the limited ones being the most sought after.
Caithness Glass is still in operation today.
