Michael Aram Calla Lily Midnight Nut Dish
The Calla Lily Midnight Collection is inspired by the beauty of the calla lily flower. The architectural, curving shape of the flower is strong, yet suggests innocence and purity. The motif is inspired by the wedding bouquet as seen in Michael Aram's mother's wedding picture. In the Calla Lily Midnight Collection, the flowers are deep purple and gold, representing creativity, wisdom, dignity, power, and luxury.
"The dark, midnight color of the calla lily flower reminds me of how truly mysterious nature can be. It has a magical feeling that only darkness can create. The purplish black color I achieved is a combination of the calmest of blues with the fiercest energetic red I could find."

Michael Aram is an award-winning American Armenian artist who has dedicated his career to craft-based design. Inspired by a trip to India at age 25, he established a second home and studio there, where he continues to draw creative inspiration today.
Trained as a painter, sculptor, and art historian, Michael has neatly applied his diverse background to the decorative arts. Lyrical and often witty, his work encompasses a wide range of media and reveals a rich and variant source of inspiration – nature, mythology, narrative storytelling, and purified form. Michael’s work is also a celebration of craft and age-old hand working traditions. It is the enduring fusion of these ideals – originality, narrative, and craftsmanship – that has become the hallmark of this gifted artist.
