The Tale Behind Michael Aram’s Black Orchid Collection
Highly inspired by nature and mythology, award-winning American artist Michael Aram often creates hand-crafted pieces that merge both with the art of storytelling.
Furthermore, a proponent in combining the imperfections innate in the handmade process with the imperfect perfection of nature. Michael believes that this philosophy is a reflection of humanity. Many of his collections have a rich storyline, symbolism and deep-rooted meaning. Besides nature and mythology being Michael’s biggest source of inspiration, the tradition behind the handcrafting process is another element that inspires his creations.
The celebration of the craftsmanship behind hand-working traditions has become the trademark of Michael Aram and his brand. Each piece from Michael is imaginative and handcrafted, whether he is creating an enchanted garden–inspired candlestick or a bronze lamp with a pattern of lily pads. Every single one of his collection has a story to tell.
Feminine, strong and seductive. The Black Orchid Collection was inspired by the symbolism and the myth behind the black orchid. Strikingly simple yet full of the finest details, the collection embodies an almost gothic mood like the dark, velvety atmosphere of a luxurious evening.
