New York, NY, SPRING 2021—The American artist Michael Aram, renowned for his handcrafted, nature-inspired home décor and sculpture, introduces his newest collection for 2021, Golden Ginkgo.
INSPIRATION BEHIND THE COLLECTION
The Golden Ginkgo Collection takes its inspiration from the intricacies of form and texture found in foliage from around the world. By interpreting plant forms in cast metal, Aram presents work which is evocative of a natural environment transformed and redefined.
“These pieces have wonderfully undulating leaves, which create an almost rococo surface of playful, delicate, and intricate forms. By combining the individual sculpted leaves, the natural forms join to create a complex patterning. I’ve tried to capture that sense of movement and fragility in metal,” said Founder and CEO Michael Aram.
MATERIALS IN COLLECTION
- Natural & Oxidized Brass
- Stainless Steel
