Our Favorite Gifts for the Impossible-to-Shop-for Mom

You gotta love a mom who, when she wants something, goes right ahead and gets it. Except when, well, it’s the time of the year for you to get her something she wants. (Ahem, Mother’s Day is on May 13th.) Don’t worry, though. We see your claim that she already has everything and raise you this: a phone-charging bracelet, hand-blown glass jellyfish that wave in the wind, and a whole bunch of other unexpected gifts.

May 16, 2017

Matt Pugh Artist - UncommonGoods

As a lifelong artist, it didn’t take too long for Matt Pugh to grow tired of bringing other designers’ ideas to life – eventually, he couldn’t resist the need to create on his own. After a stint as a model maker, Matt decided to take his career into his own hands and began bringing his own original pieces to trade shows, where he started to gain success and recognition.

Matt’s charming designs and his use of sustainable materials in making them stood out to us right away. We’re so glad to have his unique fixtures as new additions to our assortment. Read on to hear from the rural Wiltshire, England artist about where he gets inspiration for his quirky pieces, and what goes into making them.

This Just In-spiration: Meet Tom Gauntt

April 12, 2017

Tom Gauntt - UncommonGoods

It’s often said that the hardest life situations can lead to some of the most creative works of art. The idea seems to have rung true for Tom Gauntt. After being dealt a difficult hand when diagnosed with an illness that restricted his physical activity, Tom decided to focus on smaller projects and tried out turning a pen on a lathe. Though his first iteration was less than perfect, he kept at it. Once he refined his technique, he started incorporating driftwood found along the nearby Chesapeake Bay and discovered that it made for truly special writing utensils.

We’re so excited to have Tom’s one-of-a-kind driftwood pens as new additions to our assortment. Settle in and read on to hear directly from Tom about the in-depth craftsmanship that goes into each one.
