Just 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." Tiles can be given a personal touch with special printed details about the new grandchild, including their name, birthday, and birth weight. Ceramic tiles are made in Holland and printed in Canada.

“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.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.
