Adital Ela stands on encouraging sustainability and inventing fresh ways to preserve our planet. Her studio S-Sense based out of Israel defines itself by these three principles: 1) Planet – Design of products and services that support sustainability. 2)People – Design that empowers people and communities. 3)Value – The promotion of sustainable design thinking action and education.

In an effort to create a recipe for useless matter that could be manipulated into furniture, she discovered Terra. The ingredients in the material consists of 100% environmentally friendly items like compressed soil, agricultural waste, and the natural environment. She basically made something out of nothing. Her process is quite laborious, finding herself arms and knees deep in the earthy mixture. Each stool boasts 100% organic, completely biodegradable, and entirely energy free to produce.
Terra stools have three wide legs, slightly colored at their end and an arch in between. Each stool is made with ancient building techniques gathered from the artist’s research collecting information from various Isreali sources including her grandmother.

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.
