About Horrible Adorables:
(not so) Horrible, (absolutely) Adorable

Horrible Adorables are collections of strange and fantastical creatures. They are created by Jordan Elise Perme and Chris Lees, a wife and husband team based out of Cleveland, Ohio. Horrible Adorables initially started off as the brainchild of Jordan, who began dreaming up beasts while completing her BFA in Fiber and Material Studies. Since then, it has become a collaborative venture of shared ideas.

Block Party Handmade Boutique is proud to be the Louisville gallery for Horrible Adorables and we can’t wait to show off these new creatures to you at our brand new location on Frankfort Ave!

About Jordan Elise:

Jordan Elise Perme is the creator of Horrible Adorables; a collection of faux taxidermy mounts featuring strange creatures and wonderful wonders! Jordan dreams up the creatures from the most peculiar part of her imagination and then sculpts each one-of-a-kind Horrible Adorable from foam, wool felt, and eerily realistic glass eyes. In 2009 Jordan graduated with a BFA in Fiber and Material Studies from The Cleveland Institute of Art. With a passion for novelty repeat patterns and silly objects, she also works as a freelance toy and textile designer. Jordan has proudly designed for companies such as Little Tikes, Hasbro and JoAnn Fabrics.
