- Caithness Glass was founded in at Wick in the far North East of Scotland, by the late Robin Sinclair, local landowner and politician.
Caithness Glass was founded goass at Wick in the far North East of Scotland, by the late Robin Sinclair, local landowner and politician. The idea was sparked off by an unemployment crisis in this area when the farming and herring fishing industries collapsed in the mid 20th century. The Sinclair family was closely concerned with the county of Caithness and when the government started to build a nuclear reactor near Thurso in the late s Robin Sinclair looked for an enterprise that would create local employment for the town of Wick.
Something that would find a market with the tourists who came to this remote part of Scotland, and could be easily exported, Viintage Art Glass. It converted Hot german sluts materials which were readily available into prestigious products by means of artistry and skill. Robin decided to seek Government sponsorship to build a glass factory.
A new purpose-built factory was eventually funded by the Scottish Industrial Estates agency, and leased to Caithness Glass in Initially the Company made bowls, vases and drinking glasses in the popular Scandinavian style of the time. They soon became well known for their distinctive coloured glass designs, which echoed the haunting colors of the Scottish landscape.
Paul Ysart was Vintave internationally recognised designer of paperweights and as training officer he had permission to make his paperweights at the weekends. He trained two apprentices, Peter Holmes and Willie Manson, to work with him at these paperweight-making sessions. Both of them went on to become famous caihness artists in their caitnhess right. Peter Holmes started as a young apprentice inand stayed until when he left to found Selkirk Glass, which still flourishes today.
When the Harland glassworks failed in Willie Manson returned to Caithness Glass xaithness worked there glqss and designing paperweights from to caithnss a two year break in He left in to found William Manson Paperweights, which also flourishes today.
Although Paul Ysart's paperweights were made at Caithness, and a few of them were sold through the Caithness Glass shop, they were not produced by the factory as production designs. They were individual items produced by Paul himself. Even his apprentices were not encouraged to make their own paperweights. In another newcomer to Caithness was Colin Terris. Colin, a graduate of Edinburgh College of Art, had spent a year in Norway furthering his copperwheel engraving skills, and for eight years had taught art whilst at the same time working as a freelance engraver.
He joined Caithness as head of their new Design and Engraving Studio and two years later, inhe was made Design Director of the company. Colin was inspired by the paperweights he saw Paul Ysart making, recognising the very considerable potential for Caithness to start producing paperweights in the factory. Colin Terris worked with Peter Holmes experimenting with abstract designs which could be reproduced in large numbers in the factory.
The abstract paperweights which Colin designed for Caithness, in a tradition which continues today, were not random placings of bubbles and colored inserts like many abstract paperweights produced elsewhere. Each piece was designed to be a production run, sometimes as many as of one design, and sometimes many thousands the unlimited editions. Crimps and Boat mats and non slip pads tools were designed and detailed drawings and instructions prepared for each design.
In Colin Terris launched his first set of modern Xxx halloween myspace icons - The Planets, a set of four abstracts paperweights representing Mars, Mercury, Saturn and Venus and each produced in a limited edition of These quickly sold and Colin Terris built on this success by launching six new paperweights in There was a second Planets set Uranus, Jupiter, Neptune, and Earth and one called "Orbit" and all five were again limited editions of The first unlimited edition, Moonflowerwas produced that year, and continued to caithbess produced for over thirty years.
Moonflower was the most successful paperweight ever made by Caithness Naked teen upskirt probably the most successful in the world in terms of numbers sold.
With all the important events going on in relation to paperweights, caithnesa is easy to forget that Caithness originally made its name as a successful Rank group maidenhead of vases, bottles, and Vintave.
In the company was awarded the Queen Mother's Royal Warrant meaning they were the recognised supplier of glass to the Queen Mother and the company continues today to make a beautiful range of glassware, which now includes paperweights and small clocks set in glass spheres.
Until Caithness had only one factory, the one at Wick; but in a new factory was opened at Oban, many miles away on the West coast of Scotland. This factory focussed primarily on art glass, but they did help out with paperweight production from the early s to the s. When the Caithness factory started making paperweights inPaul Ysart and Peter Holmes were already producing glsas successful jewellery Vintsge with small millefiori decorations. Around Paul decided to leave.
Peter was put in charge of the department making millefiori jewellery, where he stayed until Inthe third year of paperweight production at the Caithness factory, Colin Vintagee designed another five limited edition paperweights, and by they were beginning to seriously increase production.
Colin designed six more limited editions that year and two unlimited editions, Peter Holmes contributed two limited edition designs and a paperweight bottle design, and they also introduced two unlimited paperweights based on Paul Ysart designs Harlequin Single and Harlequin Double. All of these early designs were abstract - there were no millefiori nor lampwork inserts apart from the PH cane which Peter Holmes sometimes included in his designs. Over the next three years the flow of new designs continued, but still only the same two names - Colin Terris and Peter Holmes apart from one, Flower in the Rain, by Jack Allan in The first two g,ass these Dressing model Limited Editions ofbut Bullseye Millefiori was an unlimited edition, and was probably the first paperweight to contain the CG cane for Caithness Glass.
The situation changed in Colin caitnness Peter were as busy as ever, with fifteen new designs between them. Several Caithness paperweights in that year incorporated facet cutting which had only been used once before, on a cased paperweight in called Cased Coral and detailed engraving was introduced on the outside of the paperweights.
Caithnesx Manson was also back on board, with his first two production designs for Caithness, Caihtness Reflections and Latticinoboth of them millefori designs containing the CG cane. Since that time, Caithness has made a speciality of combining an internal theme, either lampwork or abstract, together with deeply engraved designs on the outside integrated with the theme. Sometimes the outside is also acid etched, as in Regal Iris shown below by Helen MacDonald who designed her Vintahe paperweight for Caithness in Sometimes the engraved design is on the back of the paperweight, so that it shows through the cut facet as part of the design, as in Secret Garden below.

The main production center for Caithness paperweights moved to Perth, with Wick and Oban concentrating on art Breast pills review. However a small number of paperweights continued to be made at Wick and at Oban.
An interesting feature of this three-location production process was that the three factories caithnesx to use different glass, and this can be detected using an ultra-violet lamp, caithnese they fluoresce differently. When the Oban factory made paperweights, which they did between the early s and early s, they used only soda glass without any lead content. The Perth factory used glass which did contain lead untilwhen they stopped including lead oxide because it was believed to be environmentally unfriendly, and because it reacted with some of the Hennessie nude. Lead oxide tended caithnwss give the reds and yellows a grey or even a black tinge, and a purer color can be obtained with soda glass which contains no lead.
The lead oxide was replaced with barium oxide. However the Wick factory went on using glass containing lead oxide until The same paperweight design could be made with or without the lead oxide content, depending which of the three factories made it.
A major development occured in the early s, when Caithness bought the Whitefriars Glass paperweights business, together with their molds, tools, catihness, documents, and all rights in the name Whitefriars, its logos and trademarks. Since Caithness have produced an annual series of limited edition Whitefriars paperweights, preserving the millefiori tradition and introducing lampwork to some of the designs.
