Calamityware is a small, eight-person, one-dog company headquartered in Pittsburgh. We love bringing the darkly whimsical view of our founder and chief monster-maker, Don Moyer, to life. Our products are high quality, meticulously manufactured items that make wonderful gifts for you and other weird-adjacent people in your life. Our goal is to make you smile.
I'm at a time of life when I shouldn't be adding more stuff, but this witch was irresistible, and I regret nothing at all about the purchase. The witch and cat illustrations are some of Calamityware's best, the metal items (cat, witch, and hanging hook) are good quality and so's the box, and I can think of ways the various components can be used temporarily or permanently, together or separately (jewelry, for instance). Even the full-color paper protector sheet (not shown at the Calamityware site) is going to be framed for Halloween display, a tiny treasure which I hope to see eventually as another item--hint hint hint! Witches: not just for kitchens anymore.
Sturdy and attractive talisman. The debossing is well done and the little cat charm a delightful bonus. I am confident that my pie crusts will greatly improve with the addition of this witch to my kitchen.
In the spirit of housewarming I sent my Kitchen Witch off as a gift. WHY DID I DO THAT? Immediately after her departure the toaster started burning toast and I did not hear the timer go off for a pot of rice. A bug got inside and bit me. Need I say more?
Picture does not give this adorable item justice. Arrived in a professional, high quality gift box. delightful.
I love this talisman. It's beautifully made and will be a welcome addition to my kitchen and paired perfectly with my Calamityware Kitchen Witch canisters.
Love my kitchen which! Bought one as a present for my daughter in-law, but just had to add another to my order for myself.
I love this talisman! Beautifully fashioned--it's even more striking in person than the picture on the site! The item can quickly and securely sealed. Even the inside packaging is cool! As another reviewer wrote about the paper protector sheet, yes, that should be the inspiration for other products. Thank you, Calamityware, for insuring that I and my family and household are fully protected!
We love our kitchen witch! Since placing her, all of our recipes have gone smoothly and come out perfect— we always seem to have just enough of ingredients too. I recommend asking her for help (her decision whether or not to help of course) with specific tasks as they arise. Beautifully made object and a delight to have in our kitchen. Treat her well and she will treat you well.
This is super cute and I'm very happy with the quality and design. Would make a great gift.
Keeps food fresh and monsters away!
