Mastering metalwork brought mankind out of the Stone Age, just as mastering the pogo stick brought mankind closer to painting the kitchen ceiling. Give your home an easier makeover with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of premade or custom metal works from Duerst.
Stefan Duerst designs, crafts, and installs an array of custom and premade metalwork drawn from myriad styles, ranging from gothic and renaissance to art nouveau and contemporary. Prop up flower-bed denizens with minimalist garden stakes ($20) or dramatically whip open kitchen pantries with artful metallic door handles ($60 for medium size). Industrial chic wall hooks ($60 for large) await winter coats and cloaks of invisibility, and bathroom towel racks ($40) and drawer pulls ($30) can augment home decor and impart metallurgical secrets. Duerst's resident alloy artisan has crafted works throughout the world, sculpting custom-designed metal pieces and macaroni portraits in countries including Germany, France, Switzerland, and the United States.
