Francis is the third and youngest brother of the Dorper-Cross clan and was convinced from a very young age that he was swapped at birth, that perhaps his mother had brought home the wrong son, so unlike his elder brothers was he.
He is a one of a kind sculpture made from many layers of frayed and faded antique and vintage textiles over clay and wire. Each little piece of fabric carries a story of a life before Francis and they all come together to make him such a gorgeous bloke.
My sculptures are hand made in my studio in a beachside cottage in Perth Australia. Each one is completely unique and comes with it's own delightful story about each character's life and adventures.
Francis is a sculpture - he may look cuddly but he's not a toy. Francis is mounted on a timber post and base.
