Michael Aram Feather Tray
The image of a feather always conjures ideas of flight, weightlessness and gossamer movement. When we find them in nature, however, they are often deeply weathered and windswept. Michael Aram's Black Feather Collection celebrates the beauty that can remain in a ravaged object...dark, brooding, disheveled...yet somehow in tact and alive with sensuality. Each sculpture speaks of the life that came before we discovered it - where it has been, how high it has flown and the creatures that bore them.
