Francisco Barada

Frank has 10 years of welding experience creating numerous high-end, elaborate and ornate fences and gates at Castillo Iron, a small ornamental shop in Johnston, RI. His work consist mostly of handmade scrolls and other ornaments using the same jig work and process covered in his jig-making courses. Frank has spends most of his free time in the shop creating personal art projects. His sculptures range from six inch figurines of people, animals, bugs and flowers to large scale projects such as a 6 ft tall butterfly with a wing span of 4 ft and a 6 1/2 ft tall Pterodactyl with a 10 ft wing span. Frank has been also been an independent artist at the Steel Yard since 2003.
