    Caroline Sutour, a native of southern France, is a sculptor, textile designer, and graphic designer. She was born in the Mediterranean port of Sète and grew up in nearby Nîmes, an important city since Roman times. A self-taught artist, she has lived in the Bay Area since 1987. She has shown and sold works in both France and the United States.

    Images from the unconscious, invoking ancient and exotic cultures, take form in her paintings, welded metal sculptures, and hand-carved wood sculptures. Gods and goddesses, warriors, and other figures populate the landscape of her works.

    She has recently been working with welded copper, unusual in the art world, where pieces are normally soldered or brazed.

    “I work in the unusual medium of welded copper. Copper is one of the most ancient and one of the most beautiful metals.

    My copper pieces are all hand-made and welded with the GTAW arc welding process, better known as TIG. Some of the colors on the metal come from red and black copper oxides, others, from the heat. Each color indicates a certain temperature.
