"Butterflies Attack" OOAK Art doll by NIADA Artist HENNIE KOFFRIE

"Butterflies Attack" has been Hennie’s traveling doll, visiting 5 museums at least. This piece was featured in Japan’s Modern Art catalogue.

Multi medium sculpture:
Paper clay, metallic fibers, handmade paper that was painted. The doll is sealed with “gofun”.

Year: 1997
Size : 22 inches


Amidst her studies in the seventies, Hennie Koffrie started dollmaking when asked to make puppets by an advertising company. She was hooked! She adored the richness of materials and unlimited possibilities. Her dolls developed from theatre to dolls that play with your mind. As John Darcy Noble noticed: “dream-like, they exist in their own dimension, unaffected by the world outside.” Hennie’s big goal is still to get a grip on the past, the present, and the future; to melt them down in one project. It is not her intention to create the reality of the human form. Her transient and fragile-looking figures are a mirror of her thoughts.

All of the dolls listed in the NIADA Artists Collective have been generously donated to The NIADA Foundation by the artists and patrons of NIADA to raise money to cover printing and production costs of the "NIADA Art Dolls: Rich Traditions, New Ideas" book which showcases the history of the organization and work of 160 artists who have been awarded membership since the group’s founding in 1963. The book was published in 2009 by The NIADA Foundation and The Susan Quinlan Doll & Teddy Bear Museum & Library.

Each artist member creates their individual style and type of art doll. Whether produced as a one-of-a-kind piece or part of an edition, the ideal work reflects excellence; all work must be consistently well conceived, expertly executed without technical faults, and should show an individual identity of design. Work is promoted and marketed by individual artists, and by NIADA in venues such as its annual Show and Sale, conferences, and publications.

The NIADA Foundation teaches and mentors emerging doll artists. All proceeds from the sale of these dolls will go to the NIADA Foundation Scholarship Fund.
