The Monster Family, Kitchen Helpers

View all 8 Photos

A few select kitchen staples now come in family size, representing mom, pop, and kiddos.  Monster Family is a collection of handcrafted oak pieces by Italian designer Andrea de Chirico. His inspiration began in the heart of the eccentric Monster Park of Bomarzo, Italy.
Mother’s name is Ophelia, the wall clock.  The sweet pendulum glides gracefully within the arch of this curvious clock.  Her face is without markings, simple and direct with limitless energy to get through each day.
Strong and sturdy, facilitating strike after strike of the knife blade is Otello, the father serving as the cutting board.  He takes the brunt of the work all day, providing generous portions for the family one plate at a time.

The children are Oscar the spice rack and Otto and Otilia two little tea towel holders. These guys are always bringing life, energy, and fun to the home.  The spice rack adds a touch of whimsy with curious drawers and openings.  Hang the basic hooks any which way you please within reach.  Their arrangement can bring an art form to a wall.

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.
