Cathy Richardson - Touchstone Glass in Minnesota - first worked as a geologist before turning to art in the mid-1980s and learning about glass at - among other places - the Corning Glass Studio. Initially Cathy made stained glass panels before turning to paperweights. In her work Cathy combines a love of nature with meticulous attention to detail to produce realistic images and draws her inspiration from the sea, shorelines, the desert and flower gardens. Her paperweights are script-signed and dated.
