About Michael Aram:
Designer and craftsman Michael Aram (ah-RAHM) doesn't merely reproduce what he finds in naturehe enhances it. After studying art in New York in the late 1980s, Aram 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.
