About Soul Gate Eldorado

This elegant, ethereal, and hand-forged contemporary wall sculpture by Stefen Duerst, is hot-formed steel, powder-coated yellow, and finished with a double layer of German 24-karat leaf gold. A unique version of this sculpture is available on commission, please allow 8 weeks for completion.

The Canadian artist hand-forges these lyrical abstract forms from one continuous wide ribbon of steel to create fluid ‘curls’ that appear to express energy in motion. Duerst looks to nature’s energy—earth, wind, fire, and water for his inspiration and juxtaposes organic shapes with industrial materials. Duerst’s artworks can now be found in many prestigious public collections throughout North America. One of a series.

“The Soul Gate has been a labour of love, covering that entire piece with 23-karat German gold leaf over a Savannah gold powder-coated base. Really love the result and the ‘old world feeling’ of this one.” Stefan Duerst.
