The Black Orchid Collection takes its inspiration from the intricacies of form and texture found in foliage from around the world. By interpreting plant forms in cast metal, Aram presents work which is evocative of a natural environment transformed and redefined. "This collection was really born out of the sense I have of haute couture. There is a velvety luxury ‰ۡÌÝÌÕ an almost gothic quality ‰ۡÌÝÌÕ to representing orchids in blackened nickel. To me, the pieces feel seductive and graceful, yet dark and unexpected."
