Caithness Paperweights: Colin Terris

Glass collectors love Caithness Paperweights for their beautiful color and original designs.  Made in Scotland by master glass artisans, many of these were created when Colin Terris was head designer.  Colin trained at the Edinburg College of Art and his work can be found in most major paperweight collections.  He’s considered the father of modern paperweight design, and he personally signed many of Ann’s Caithness paperweights.  Here are a few examples; please visit to see many more:
