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. .

Patricia Carlin

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 GLASSES - SET OF FOUR:

              My friend is a cat lover so I knew these glasses would be perfect for her. She is getting married so I was wee bit concerned that her fiance may not be as cat crazy, but when she opened these up he was just as excited as she was! I was very impressed with the quality of the images on the glasses - I had been concerned that the print would peel or wash off quickly, but these appear to be of very high quality and should last several years (hopefully) before fading (if they fade at all).

                I bought these glasses as a thank you gift for my son and daughter-in-law. They are cat people and loved the whimsical illustrations on the glasses. They also appreciated the pint size.

                  Tired of cat calendars and would never buy someone a cat sweatshirt, perfect gift for the cat lover with a witty sense of humor.
