The Gotham Collection celebrates the ancient metalworking technique of forging. Utilized for generations by master craftsmen, this skill can only be taught through diligent apprenticeship with their predecessors. The intricate patterns are achieved by slowly heating sheets of metal and hand hammering them with different levels of pressure, creating unexpected surfaces with a gently gothic and brooding feeling. This texture is then married with clean, streamlined shapes. The result is a completely unique collection with a distant nod to the handsome and decisive lines of the industrial period of the 1930's.

"I am intrigued by the striking, deep textures created through the hand forging process. In a way, they are evocative of the early 20th Century architecture seen in New York City in landmarks such as the Empire State and Chrysler buildings. Everything from the exterior to the elevator doors, radiator covers, and stairwells are reminiscent of that beautiful aesthetic and monumental moment in time. To me, the collection feels masculine but still universal."


Care:

Michael Aram Fine Porcelain was designed to reflect the way we are entertaining today – incorporating ease and comfort without sacrificing grace and detail. It's about the casualization of formal and the formalization of casual.

Constructed of bodies with exceptionally executed graphic details, the pieces remain sturdy enough to withstand everyday use. Each motif stands on its own but can also be combined with any or all of the texture patterns to create many variations of place settings. All the body shapes are exactly the same, so you can mix the plates any way you want and know they'll always look beautiful. The designs are also carefully managed to integrate perfectly with Michael's existing array of metal, glass, wood and stone serving and decorative objects. The result is an exquisite table every time you use them...casual when you want to be, more formal when the time is right...with motifs that go from two-dimensional expressions in the place settings to fully sculptural executions in the center of the table.

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 what would later be a life-altering trip to India where he discovered rich metalworking traditions. Inspired to work with craftsmen whose skills he felt were greatly untapped, Aram turned his creative energies towards craft based design, setting up a home and workshop in New Delhi.

Aram's work reflects humanity through the directness of the handmade process, as each piece is lovingly made using age old traditional techniques. The artisan nature of the work imbues it with a soulful quality and an energy, which Aram feels is only possible with work, which reflects the hand of the maker. This energy is further enhanced by the tension of line, form, and meaning that is characteristic of Aram's work. As extraordinary objects, they cause us to pause and consider them, and therefore create a sense of ritual and ceremony in their day to day use.

The objects range from tableware to furniture, both are sold in galleries and specialty stores worldwide. This broad diversity embodies Aram's versatility as an artist who is comfortable working on private commissions, one of a kind piece for gallery shows, or pieces that are affordable to a wider audience. 

Bridging the gap between the artist and artisan is a hallmark of Michael Aram's work. Whether in his narrative and figurative "signature" collection, or in his more contemporary 'studio' line, each piece is entirely handmade with no two examples ever exactly the same. The handmade quality of the work allows it to shift beautifully between the realm of fine and decorative art. This enduring melange of quality and originality sits comfortably at home in contemporary as well as in more classical interiors. 

Appropriately, in Hindi, "aram" means "gently, with peace, with love and care". Repeating this direction mantra-like to the craftsmen, Aram succeeds in making high quality work, which is as much a personal statement, as its appeal is universal.
