Creative Souls

About a decade ago, life-long costume designer and fabric artist Catherine Ione decided to reduce some of her inventory by re-covering every pillow in our home, the Casa del Campo. As the throw pillows began to stack up, I (Peter, her husband) proclaimed, "Gee honey, it's starting to look like a Flop House around here". Flop House Creations had begun.

Over the years we have developed as creative partners in this endeavor, Catherine with fabric, myself with a variety of media--concrete, reclaimed wood, more recently copper and steel--to forge (quite literally) a home-spun business of functional artwork that all features one key ingredient--LOVE--that is added to everything that we do.

When you purchase a product from Flop House Creations, whether it be an eco-botanically dyed ladies top from Catherine or a coal-forged, steel-handled, copper-bladed kitchen utensil from Peter, you are receiving the cumulative energies of two people who have spent long lives trying to stay in the sunshine of the spirit.

Thank you for visiting our shop, and enjoy!
