Michael Aram is an American Metalware designer who has lived and worked in India since 1989. He has applied his considerable skill as a painter, sculptor and art historian to the decorative arts. Made using traditional, age-old metalworking techniques, Michael's pieces encompass a variety of media and are inspired by a range of sources. This allows his work to function artistically or decoratively in contemporary or classical interiors. Michael draws inspiration from nature, religious traditions, mythology and narrative stories, among other places.
