Sarita Peled, 44, Owner of architecture and interior design studio EchoDesign with partner Ron Peled.

Sarita creates sculptures out of steel – She believes rusted steel has great intensity, akin to a memory darkening over time while retaining its presence.

The attached images were largely created and displayed in her debut show, “The Pheonix” at the Florentine Quartet. Her work was inspired by Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding.

“The Pheonix is a holy fire bird. It recycles its own life so that every ending is also a new beginning. It rises from the ashes smarter, stronger and more creative, with infinite opportunities for growth, flourishing and healing. Sarita Peled, like the Pheonix, creates out of fire, repeating, multiplying, enlarging and minimizing connections.”

It all started with Origami she created with her eldest son… In her special way, she turned the classical, delicate Japanese paper folds into powerful steel folds of her own. Sarita uses three distinct sculpting techniques using nothing but her hands - no computerized equipment or outside assistance. The long hours she spends on her work are integral to the creative process… The physical labor combined with fire, the Sisyphean process all the way up till the finished piece, is essential to her work.

Origami – The steel folding technique is similar to Origami – Creating a model (in some instances), marking the metal plates, cutting with Plasma, fluting the elements, folding using only the hands and body, welding with a CO welding power supply, filing, putting the sculpture out to naturally rust for 30 days or longer, filing again and spraying lacquer on the finished sculpture.

Rings – The series of rings is small but customizable. Sarita cuts the rings by hand – she uses a circular saw to cut metal poles in different diameters, connecting them into new images by welding, filing, rusting and lacquering.


Large objects – Environmental sculpting, constructing large objects weighing between 500-2000 kilograms.

The smaller objects are built with metal constructions wrapped in 3-5 mm metal plates, welding with a CO welding power supply, filing, putting the sculpture out to naturally rust for 30 days or longer, filing again and spraying lacquer on the finished sculpture.

Heavy objects – Custom cut and delivered straight from the steel factory, assembled at the workshop using the same techniques mentioned above, with small cranes and forklifts.
