With a shimmering, sensual design the Butterfly Small Gingko Vase, Silver has a decadent narrative.
FLORA AS FAUNA
Fascinated by a particular type of ginkgo tree, Michael Aram celebrates flora as fauna with this solid brass vase. The ‘Butterfly Gingko’ grows with leaves that are not dissimilar from butterfly wings.
With heart and soul, this piece is the product of traditional hand-craftsmanship at an excellent standard. Hand-etched cocoon vessels create the distinctive leaves of this tree, which are poised to fly as if like butterflies.
Trained as a painter, sculptor and art historian, Michael Aram showcases a diverse range of decorative and practical skills. This rich and fulfilling background seeps into the very fabric of his work, which celebrates traditional craftsmanship and the way in which imperfection in nature creates beauty.
