From Michael Aram.About Michael Aram:Designer and craftsman Michael Aram (ah-RAHM) doesn't merely reproduce what he finds in nature he enhances it. The emotional response to Aram's collections is intensified by the methods he employs. After studying art in new York in the late 1980s, he took what would be a life-altering trip to India. There, he discovered a rich metalworking tradition that inspired his turn toward handcrafted design. Aram established a home and workshop in New Delhi, creating pieces with a soulful quality and energy that reflect the hand of the artisan. The tension of line, form, and meaning is a distinguishing characteristic of Aram's extraordinary designs, inspiring thoughtful appreciation and a sense of ceremony in their day-to-day use.
