Cool As A Cucumber

Waddle towards Nirvana with these charming mugs by Patricia Carlin. Four meditative penguins find their own sense of calm on white ceramic, then encourage you to do the same with a different zen proverb printed on the inside of each vessel--a "tongue-in-beak" way to send your stress to the South Pole. Made in Tucson, Arizona.

Be: Do not fear the shark if your feathers are dry.
Breathe: If the ice cracks and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?
Fly!: Flight is not confined to the sky.
Meditate: What is the sound of one flipper flapping?

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.

      These make me smile every morning,mhave moved my other mugs to the back of the shelf. Just back from NZ, saw lots of penguins and was sad to return to a world without them. Now I have coffee with them. They are solid in the hand, and the four sayings are very cheery. So glad I pushed the order button

        Sometimes mugs are a challenge; will the right-handed person see the image or show the image or will the left-handed person see or show the image. These mugs were designed in a novel approach -- but the thoughtful words inside and the funny images outside. It works.

          Love them! So charming, funny, whimsical. They put a smile on my face every time I take a sip. My teenage kids thought they were absolutely adorable and different. I like their shape as well, not bulky and huge, just the right size for cup of coffee or a cup of tea.

            Can't comment on actual use since I gave them as a gift, but they are a very nice size and weight for holding in hand and felt sturdy.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The mugs were well packaged and arrived very promptly.

                We like to set our one-cup coffee maker to a 10 oz cup of brew, so these are just a tad small. But, for anyone who does an 8 oz or less cup of coffee/tea, they are PERFECT!

                    Divided the set, along with tea soaps, teas, and other small items, into baskets for hard-working co-workers who deserve a break every now and again.
