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.

Aram's work reflects humanity through the directness of the handmade process, as each piece is lovingly made using age old traditional techniques. The artisan nature of the work imbues it with a soulful quality and an energy, which Aram feels is only possible with work, which reflects the hand of the maker. This energy is further enhanced by the tension of line, form, and meaning that is characteristic of Aram's work. As extraordinary objects, they cause us to pause and consider them, and therefore create a sense of ritual and ceremony in their day to day use.

The objects range from tableware to furniture, both are sold in galleries and specialty stores worldwide. This broad diversity embodies Aram's versatility as an artist who is comfortable working on private commissions, one of a kind piece for gallery shows, or pieces that are
affordable to a wider audience.

Bridging the gap between the artist and artisan is a hallmark of Michael Aram's work. Whether in his narrative and figurative "signature" collection, or in his more contemporary 'studio' line, each piece is entirely handmade with no two examples ever exactly the same. The handmade quality of the work allows it to shift beautifully between the realm of fine and decorative art. This enduring melange of quality and originality sits comfortably at home in contemporary as well as in more classical interiors.

Appropriately, in Hindi, "aram" means "gently, with peace, with love and care". Repeating this direction mantra-like to the craftsmen, Aram succeeds in making high quality work, which is as much a personal statement, as its appeal is universal.

Michael Aram Palm Washing Cup
7"L x 4"W x 4.75"H, 27 Oz.; Stainless Steel, Antique Goldtone

The Palm Collection is inspired by the beauty of a windswept palm tree and the perfectly imperfect shapes of woven palm leaves and fallen fronds. The warm antique gold finish and the intricate sculpted textures exude comfortable luxury and graciousness.

"I was having lunch with friends on a veranda overlooking the sea when I looked down to the lawn and saw a fallen palm frond. The leaves were all twisted and curled, yet it stood out magnificently against the otherwise perfect landscape. It made me think of the passage of time, and the bountiful gifts of the Palm tree, which provides everything from food to shelter."

Michael Aram White Orchid Vertical Napkin Holder

2.75"W x 7.75"L x 4.25"H; Nickelplate, Granite

The Michael Aram White Orchid Collection illuminates the ethereal spirit of the orchid flower. Evocative of purity, delicacy, femininity and grace, the white metal version offers a strikingly different appeal than its black counterpart. While the sculpture is just as exuberant and detailed, in white, these flowers take on a simplicity that is completely unique. There is a sense of lightness, freshness and even innocence – each petal seemingly untouched and pure.

"Orchids naturally emit a sense of sensuality and seductiveness, but in white nickel they take on a completely different meaning – an element of brightness that I associate with new beginnings. When I think of white orchids, I imagine the purity and sweetness of a newborn child, or a newlywed couple at the beginning of their lifelong journey."

Michael Aram Rope Cocktail Shaker
10.5"H, 22 Oz.; Stainless Steel, Nickelplate

The Rope Collection celebrates the beautiful form and textures found in ropes, both individually and when they are massed together. Michael's version seeks to express the unique undulations and the rough texture created as the ropes are used, particularly in a nautical environment. Although appropriate for anyone, the collection was conceived as gifts for the modern gentleman. The objects can be used to accessorize the home or office, and can be used for enjoying an evening drink or even bringing a touch of style to a poker game. It is perfect for the modern aesthete who wants to take ownership of his own elegance and interests.

"On a recent trip to Alaska, I was boarding a ship and I took notice of a large pile of ropes laying on the dock…to me, there was something so beautiful, yet intriguing about the rough textures and shapes the ropes created. It got me thinking about the fact that ropes are integral objects for everyday lives. They capture the adventurous spirit of the ocean and the nautical world. They have an inherent vigor as well as a wonderful grace."
