The Molten collection by Michael Aram takes its inspiration from the lore of ancient craftsmanship and the application of these time-honored techniques to modern shapes and environments. It is about the transformation of industrial to beautiful; of technical to lyrical. The collection also strives to represent the clean lines and minimal atmosphere associated with the ideals of contemporary life and progressive design. Intricately hand-welded edges make each piece an individual work of art, with no two pieces being identical.
"The Molten collection represents a way of living which I really love: streamlined, timeless shapes...objects which reverberate with the skill of their maker and yet do not fit into a traditional interpretation of craft. For me, the pieces possess a soulfulness and organic energy only possible through the handmade process. Each piece of Molten is made by a craftsman dropping individual welds along the edge of the object, not for the function of joinery, but for the beauty and spontaneous quality that molten metal can create."
