How Grand!

The birth of a child not only marks the dawn of a new generation, it also symbolizes the start of a beautiful relationship: the one shared between a grandma and her first grandchild. Designed by Patricia Carlin, these soft teal or lavender tiles framed in natural ash wood honor the birth of first-time mee-maas, nanas, bubbas, and abuelas with the printed phrase "When a baby arrives, a grandma is born." Ceramic tiles are made in Holland and printed in Canada. We also offer personalized A Grandma Is Born tiles.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Patricia Carlin

Patricia started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business. Patricia designed and wrote copy for several product lines for the new venture.

When Red Wheel Weiser Conari Press noticed the glassware at a gift show, they saw book potential. With their help, Patricia produced two books: "Glam Girl" and "Geeky Girl".

Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says. "After I had my daughter I rediscovered the power these little sketches have to tell a story. Drawing was a fun way to communicate without language." collection

    Comments about A GRANDMA IS BORN TILE:

    I bought this for my mom for her birthday right after her first grandaughter was born and she loves it! It is a great size to put on a side table and has a nice stand. In her words, it makes her smile :)
