The Zen of Feline Duality

Cat lovers will reach owner-enlightenment with glasses featuring yin and yang images exploring feline duality. The Zen master's secret is found in dichotomous traits like:

Thinker/Player: "In catnip there is dignity"
Hiss/Purr:"Napping overcomes wrath"
Bad Cat/Good Cat:"To obey is to resist"
Go Away/Love Me:"To shun is to adore"
Made in the UK, printed in Canada.



Sold as a set of 4.

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 CAT TAO COASTERS - SET OF 4:

      These coasters capture the true nature of the Tao in a spirited, funny way without being too overbearing. I purchased these as a gift for my wife (who is a wine, cat, and I Ching enthusiast)and she remarked on both their style and durability. The cork sticks to most surfaces and the coasters resist merlot stains like a champ. I only wish there were more than four coasters in the series.

        perfect for cat lovers - creatively captures the essence of cats' nature and why we love them! We own two sets of the matching cat glasses from Uncommon Goods, by the same artist with the same design - also highly recommended. Gave these coasters as a gift - practical, yet unusual and fun....
