The Flights of Fancy Collection is a series of unique objects that celebrate whimsy in daily life. Whether seen individually or among other pieces, they evoke a sense of charm and fantasy. Drawing profoundly from Aram's background as a sculptor, each piece emerges from hand-sculpted clay and offers a child-like quality with an inherent depth of meaning.
"There is so much power in the story of Noah's Ark resting on Mount Ararat in historic Armenia. It has always been a potent representation of my own Armenian heritage. I am also very moved by the narrative of Noah's Ark and the survival of man and animal after the great flood is a powerful story. Even though it is a well-known old testament reference, all great monotheistic religions accept the ark as a symbol of mankind's salvation. I wanted to represent it for everyone!"
The Olive Branch Collection is one of the best known and most loved of Michael's motifs. The simple forms create objects that serve wonderfully as stunning individual gifts or an exuberant table setting that decorates an entire moment of your life. The theme itself captures all the most distinctive aspects of Michael's work - narrative strength, deep symbolism and extraordinary sculptural expression.
"The olive branch has always held a powerful meaning for me representing both peace and victory. In designing functional objects with natural forms, there is a mingled sense of fragility and intensity. For me, it is like nature spreading through my interior spaces - like a magical olive grove sweetly willing its way into my home."
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 that 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 individually sculpted leaves, the natural forms join to create a complex patterning. I’ve tried to capture that sense of movement and fragility in metal.” ~ M.
