Michael Aram is an American born artist who works primarily in metal. After studying fine art and living in New York in the late 1980's, where his creative and artistic leanings were already evident, he travelled through India and became enamoured of its millennial tradition of handcrafted metalwork. Aram immediately began studying metal-craft techniques and started working with local craftsmen on pieces of his own design.
Aram's work reflects humanity, as each piece is lovingly made using time-honoured traditional techniques. The artisan nature of the work imbues it with a soulful quality and energy, which Aram feels is only possible with work that mirrors the hand of the maker.
