Arts: When Modern Meets Craft

Saturday, March 9, 2013

Modern philosophies and traditional craftsmanship seem to be two worlds apart, but in fact they both agree on three things: efficiency, honesty, and usefulness. 

On March 21, 2013 Hasenpfeffer Incorporated will be at Stunningly Strange Gallery, showing how these ideals can come together through their marvelous dolls and animals.

The creator and designer behind Hasenpfeffer Inc. is the wonderful Daniela Shelton. These amazing dolls are handcrafted and made of recycled materials. The fabric comes from old textiles, either from thrift stores or vendors that deal in dead stock textiles, and the dolls are stuffed with hypoallergenic fiberfill made from non-toxic soda bottles.

“It’s when we painstakingly cram the last shred of fiberfill that something magical happens: these cast-off bits and pieces take on a life of their own,” Shelton says. “Even though we’ve made hundreds, each one feels like the first.”

Hasenpfeffer Inc. has been featured in printed and online magazines such as Canadian Family, Romantic Homes, Poppytalk Handmade, and Small, as well as blogs like {KID}independent, Sew, Mama, Sew!, Cool Mom Picks, and Rockstew. She has also shown at Urban Craft Uprising, Edmonds Arts Festival, EtsyRain Shows, Bellevue Arts Festival, and Crafty Wonderland.

Hasenpfeffer Inc. will be featured at Stunningly Strange Gallery during the Edmonds Third Thursday Art Walk on March 21, 2013 from 5-8pm.

Stunningly Strange Gallery is located at 407 Main Street Edmonds 98020. Store hours are 10am-6pm Tuesday through Saturday, and 1-5pm on Sundays. Gallery - 425-697-0420.
