About this collection:
The Flights of Fancy Collection is a series of unique objects that celebrate whimsy in daily life. Whether seen individually or among other pieces, they evoke a sense of charm and fantasy. Drawing profoundly from Aram's background as a sculptor, each piece emerges from hand-sculpted clay and offers a childlike quality with an inherent depth of meaning. "There is such power in narrative images for me. There is a feeling that we are creating an entire dreamlike world, building designs around interactive themes that are familiar to all of us. The shapes are obvious and immediate and, at the same time lyrical and full of fantasy- the way we might imagine the scenes in a fairy tale we are being told. The Cat and Mouse is an ongoing story for me. Tired of chasing, the cat has decided to sit this one out, as he still ponders where those mice could be!"

About Michael Aram:
American artist Michael Aram studied art in New York in the late 1980s before traveling to India on an inspirational journey, where he discovered a rich metalworking tradition that inspired his turn toward handcrafted design. Michael Aram established a home and workshop in New Delhi, where he began crafting objects ranging from tableware to furniture, all of which reflect the hand of the artisan. The tension of line, form, and meaning is a distinguishing characteristic of Aram's extraordinary designs, inspiring thoughtful appreciation and bringing a sense of ceremony in their day-to-day use. Each Michael Aram piece is handmade, so no two items are exactly alike.
