Barbara Franc

Sculptor working with recycled materials

London, Greater London


mixed media, animals, sculpture


£150 — £3000


I make sculptures based on animals and birds from recycled and found materials. I enjoy the challenge of incorporating these objects into my work and the fact that each piece is totally unique. I will often use items donated by my clients to add into their commissioned creature which makes the finished sculpture very personal to them.

I also use vintage fabrics and yarns sewn onto a stuffed wire armature to make ‘shaggy’ animals such as the dogs, which are all based on my own Lurcher, Rufus.
