Artist Statement:

"Glass, like water, is a very fluid and dynamic medium. It can contain, surround, and magnify objects, creating magical effects to delight the eye and fascinate the imagination. Using these properties, I am able to create beautiful, dynamic designs that are full of life, inviting you to look again and again into my world. The beautiful three-dimensional environments in my paperweights and marbles express my meticulous attention to detail and life-long love of nature."

Touchstone Glass is a family business. Cathy designs the work and is assisted in its creation by her son, Colin, who also designs his own pieces. Cathy's husband, Steve, does most of the cold work. The paperweights and marbles from Touchstone Glass are exquisitely made pieces that you will enjoy for a lifetime.
