Tortoise 5x7 Frame

Michael Aram


The Flights of Fancy Collection is a series of unique objects that celebrate whimsy in daily life. Whether seen individually or among other pieces, they evoke a sense of charm and fantasy. Drawing profoundly from Aram's background as a sculptor, each piece emerges from hand-sculpted clay and offers a child-like quality with an inherent depth of meaning.

“I am fascinated by tortoises and how their shells trace their long lifespan.  Tortoise shells symbolize protection from the outside world just as the homes we create give us a sense of safety and well-being.  The patterning and deep, rich colors of the tortoise shell feel so luxurious and exotic to me.” -M.
