Caithness Glass: Loch, Heather & Peat
« on: March 23, 2011, 12:25:22 PM »
I'm delighted to announce the publication of my new book on Caithness Glass. The book comprises:
•  A specially written introduction covering the history of Caithness Glass from the inception of the idea in 1958 until 2008, and containing entirely new, as yet unpublished, information.
•  Compiled with the help of Domhnall ÓBroin’s daughter Emer, key figures in the company, and leading designers and glassmakers including Peter Holmes.
•  A detailed examination of co-founder and first designer Domhnall ÓBroin’s life, and his work at Caithness Glass.
•  Archive photographs showing the factory’s early days, and never seen before.
•  Over 200 specially commissioned full colour photographs by Graham Rae.
•  Photographs of rare and unique pieces from the collection of Emer ÓBroin.
•  A thorough examination of the company’s enormously successful, yet hitherto ignored, sandbasted designs, accompanied by a list of the names of sandblasters.
•  Clearly divided into chapters comprising ‘Clear Colour’, ‘Stripes & Mottles’, ‘Complex Decoration’ and ‘Cut, Engraved & Sandblasted’, allowing you to quickly and easily identify your Caithness glass.
•  Designers covered include Domhnall ÓBroin, Colin Terris, Paul Ysart, David Gulland, Denis Mann, Helen MacDonald, Alastair MacIntosh, Gordon Hendry, and Sarah Peterson.
•  Ranges covered include Stroma, Morven, Scaraben, Oban, Spinningdale, Adagio, Cadenza, Tartan Twist, and the later complex studio-type ranges of the 1990s and 2000s.
•  Information on the different colours, boxes and labels used by the company, and original advertisements and catalogue pages.
It costs £20 + P&P from my website,
I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, I'll be very interested in your comments!
Many thanks,
