Michael Aram is an American-born artist who works primarily in metal. After studying fine art and living as an artist in New York in the late 1980's, Aram took a life-altering trip to India where he discovered the rich traditions of metal working. Inspired to work with craftsmen whose skills he felt were greatly untapped, he turned his creative focus toward craft based design and set up a home and workshop in New Delhi. Through a handmade process, each Michael Aram piece combines traditional metal techniques with contemporary, narrative design. Fittingly, aram in Hindi means "gently, with peace, with love and care".
