Introducing my talented new Twitter friend Alan Prince of Made By A Prince. Alan recycles and upcycles to create beautiful sculptures of woodland creatures, birds and mini beasts (not forgetting doors for faerie houses.)
Alan is an original member of DevonArtPop a group of artists that met on twitter a couple of years ago. They organise pop-up galleries at different venues around Devon, England.
These beautiful sculptures and jewellery are available to buy direct from the Prince himself.

Sculptor, Artist and Creator of Recycled Oddities…
I’ve had a passion to create things for as long as can I remember, becoming an approved craftsman and learning many skills along the way, years of wood turning and furniture making followed. Time spent working alongside a model engineer challenged the approach I took to my craft and gave me the insight to see things in a different way. The more difficult the piece the more I was up for the challenge, always striving for that unattainable perfection. Having worked with different medias, I have found my passion in recreating the things that I see around me with “spent items”. My chief sculptures are made from recycled copper and brass, drawing on my experience with wood to make formers to help create these. Being mostly self taught has given a feeling of freedom about my creations and I have now arrived at a point I feel comfortable sharing my efforts.
Below are some of my favourites but you can view the full gallery at Made By A Prince.
A big thank you from all the woodland faeries!
