For designer Michael Aram, the New Molten collection is a meaningful celebration of hand-craftsmanship. Every bead on every piece is an individual weld that has been carefully dropped in place by a very skilled artisan.
Each item is visibly different from another because the beading changes subtly based on the individual style of the artisan that made it.

Michael Aram's work reflects humanity through the directness of the handmade process, as each piece is lovingly made using age old traditional techniques. The artisan nature of the work imbues it with a soulful quality and an energy which Aram feels is only possible with work, which reflects the hand of the maker. This energy is further enhanced by the tension of line, form, and meaning that is characteristic of Aram's work. As extraordinary objects, they cause us to pause and consider them, and therefore create a sense of ritual and ceremony in their day to day use.
