“I create sculpture for indoor and outdoor spaces in bronze and other durable and ecology-conscious materials.
My art explores nature’s forms, inspired by my Suffolk surroundings and travels, often featuring birds. Human portrait sculpture commissions and classes throughout the year.
I describe my work as abstract-figurative. I select, simplify and refine the forms and essential elements to communicate the ephemeral beauty and essence of my subject.
My sculptures, cast mainly in bronze, celebrate our connection to nature, exploring the themes of joined destiny and belonging between humans and the rest of the natural world. I have a hand in all processes from sketch to sculpture and also tutor the entire creative process. My work has been commissioned and exhibited worldwide.”
Caro Burberry grew up surrounded by the fields and woodlands of rural Buckinghamshire,
and later Suffolk, that provided her with a deep and enduring connection to nature.
A lifelong artist with a strong background in printmaking and drawing, she received a
classical training at The Frink School of Figurative Sculpture, where her mentors included
Alan Thornhill and Peter Randall-Page RA. While studying, her work began attracting
attention and her first life-size sculpture – bronze Emerging Woman - was purchased for St
Michael’s Hospice near Hereford.
Caro discovered her love for creating sculpture in hot-poured metal while working
collaboratively with fine art foundries and museums in the UK and USA. “I have a hand in all
processes from sketch to sculpture whether the artwork is small, life-size or beyond. The
scale of my work is dictated by theme, unfolding ideas and where I am in the world.”
Caro’s sculptures cast in bronze and iron are commissioned and exhibited worldwide.
Caro was Elected a Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors in 2012 and a Worcestershire
Ambassador for the Arts in 2013.
