Michael Aram is an American born artist who works primarily in metal. After studying fine art and living as an artist in New York in the late 1980's, Aram took what would later be a life-altering trip to India where he discovered rich metalworking traditions. Inspired to work with craftsmen whose skills he felt were greatly untapped, Aram turned his creative energies towards craft based design, setting up a home and workshop in New Delhi.
For many, figs are evocative of Northern California and its spectacular wine country's lush landscape and epicurean environment. The fruit's deep, intense coloration and clean, rich flavors seem to typify the lifestyle and its sense of warmth and plenty. Meals are prepared casually and are often served beautifully in the open air surrounded by nature. Outdoor entertaining is an integral part of everyday life there. The Fig collection celebrates this very lifestyle, and its welcoming way of elegant, yet casual, entertaining
The Olive Branch Collection takes its inspiration from the intricacies of form and texture found in foliage from around the world.
The Botanical Leaf Kitchen Collection is based on one of Michael's most beloved motifs. Michael felt that pieces which are generally left out on kitchen counter and table tops should be as decorative as they are highly functional
The Garland Collection is built on classical shapes with very delicate sculpture which depicts two different flowers growing from the same vine.
