The Michael Aram White Orchid Collection illuminates the ethereal spirit of the orchid flower. Evocative of purity, delicacy, femininity and grace, the white metal version offers a strikingly different appeal than its black counterpart. While the sculpture is just as exuberant and detailed, in white, these flowers take on a simplicity that is completely unique. there is sense of lightness, freshness and even innocence... each petal seemingly untouched and pure. "Orchids naturally emit a sense of sensuality and seductiveness, but in white nickel they take on a completely different meaning..an element of brightness that I associate with new beginnings. When I think of white orchids , I imagine the purity and sweetness of a newborn child, or newlywed couple at the beginning of their lifelong journey."
