The Michael Aram Butterfly Ginkgo Collection is a poetic collection which tells the story of the delicate balance between flora and fauna, with the leaves and twigs of the ginkgo tree metamorphosing into butterflies taking flight. The piece is inspired by leaves that would blow into Aram's bedroom window from the ginkgo tree growing curbside outside his New York City apartment. The leaves seemed like a delicate gift from nature in an otherwise hostile urban environment, and especially meaningful as the ginkgo tree is associated with wellness and healing.
American artist Michael Aram studied art in New York in the late 1980s before traveling to India on an inspirational journey, where he discovered a rich metalworking tradition that inspired his turn toward handcrafted design. Michael Aram established a home and workshop in New Delhi, where he began crafting objects ranging from tableware to furniture, all of which 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 bringing a sense of ceremony in their day-to-day use. Each Michael Aram piece is handmade, so no two items are exactly alike.
