I'm Kathryn Welch, and I'm the creative spirit behind River City Glassworks.  My business started many years ago as Glass By Kat, and over the years my glass obsession has grown along with my client base.  The beautiful Hill Country of Texas is where I call home.  It is a rapidly growing area, as folks are drawn here from all over the country in search of the good life that Texans enjoy.  Our spicy food, cold beer, and dynamic music scene mix perfectly with our crystal clear, spring fed rivers and rolling hills, abundant wildflowers, and wildlife of all varieties.  The natural, rugged beauty of the area influences my art at the deepest level.

My husband, JD, is the brawn behind the business.  Always supportive of my schemes and with a hearty laugh and quick wit, he is the yin to my yang.  You'll find both of us working hard to make River City Glassworks the best it can be.
