The White Orchid Collection by Michael Aram illuminates the ethereal spirit of the orchid flower. Evocative of purity, delicacy, femininity and grace, the white metal version offers a strikingly different appeal than its black counterpart. While the sculpture is just as exuberant and detailed, in white, these flowers take on a simplicity that is completely unique. There is a sense of lightness, freshness and even innocence - each petal seemingly untouched and pure.
To quote the designer, Michael Aram: Orchids naturally emit a sense of sensuality and seductiveness, but in white nickel they take on a completely different meaning - an element of brightness that I associate with new beginnings. When I think of white orchids, I imagine the purity and sweetness of a newborn child, or a newlywed couple at the beginning of their lifelong journey.
Bridging the gap between the artist and artisan is a hallmark of Michael Aram's work. 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.
