Golden (The Flame That Never Dies) is base in Stoke on Trent - Sculptor: Wolfgang Buttress
The title references the golden flame that sprang from the original Goldendale ironworks which previously lit the Chatterley Valley – locals for many years referred to the iron works as “the flame that never dies.” The new, elegant artwork stands at 20 metres tall. The piece is made from corten steel which alludes to the steel previously manufactured in the area. Over 1,000 hand blown glass prisms are attached to the column of the artwork. Each one contains a memory or wish written on handmade paper by hundreds of people in the local community.
