A Tale Of Two Kitties

Cat lovers will reach owner-enlightenment with these four-sided glasses featuring yin and yang images exploring feline duality. Corresponding cat wisdom floats near each good and bad kitty portrait, while the secret of true harmony: "The Tao of Cat is to do your thing and leave the kitty alone" runs along the side of each glass.

Kitty wisdom includes:

"To obey is to resist"
"To shun is to adore"
"In catnip there is dignity"
"Napping overcomes wrath"

Glassware made in New Jersey, decorated in Minnesota. Sold as a set of four. .

“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She 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, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. 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.

    Very attractive and well-made. Captures the dichotomy of cats perfectly. Too bad these can't go in the dishwasher, but the size and shape make hand washing a snap.

        Bought this as a gift for myself and a group of three friends/family. Split the package of four amongst us. It gave each of us a unique statement piece to add to our own collections but serves as a playful reminder of the other cat lovers/friends in our lives. Heavy glass. Well made.
