Table top accessories suited for vanity or desk, Adobe Desk Tools in Terracotta have minimal details with confident design. The four pieces are multifunctional to organize and beautify any corner of the home. The stone bases are framed with a happily colored wire that hugs each tool into a perfect package. The terracotta used is an age old recipe of clay, silt, sand and plant fibers which has been a common building material throughout history. Italian designer Ilaria Innocenti describes her inspiration, “I found interesting to develop household objects with the same technique used to build houses, letting myself be guided by the various colors resulting from the different compositions of the ground in Italy.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
