The Butterfly Ginkgo Collection celebrates the representation of flora as fauna. Michael Aram’s fascination with a particular type of ginkgo tree, the ginkgo Biloba, or “Butterfly ginkgo”, which grows with a double leaf reminiscent of a butterfly’s wings, gave rise to a fantasia image of the plant.
The Butterfly Ginkgo Collection is executed at the highest level of hand-craftsmanship, each piece is rendered in solid bronze with acid etched cocoon-shaped vessels. The pieces in the collection are a tour de force of Indian craft and capture the poetic spirit that is so deeply indicative of Michael Aram’s work.
Michael Aram is an award-winning metal-ware, home-ware and fine jewelry designer. He launched his first metalware collection in 1989 after taking a trip to India where he began working with traditional artisanal techniques.
Each Michael Aram metal object undergoes a series of grinding, buffing and polishing techniques. Variations or ‘imperfections’ in the product’s finish are characteristic of the creation process. Due to this handmade nature, no two pieces are ever exactly alike. Please note that the variations in shape and finish are inherent to the hand-made process and should be considered part of the beauty of this piece.
