The Gotham Collection celebrates the ancient metalworking technique of forging. Utilized for generations by master craftsmen, this skill can only be taught through diligent apprenticeship with their predecessors. The intricate patterns are achieved by slowly heating sheets of metal and hand hammering them with different levels of pressure, creating unexpected surfaces with a gently gothic and brooding feeling. This texture is then married with clean, streamlined shapes. The result is a completely unique collection with a distant nod to the handsome and decisive lines of the industrial period of the 1930's.
- Each Michael Aram metal object undergoes a series of grinding, buffing, and polishing techniques. Variations or 'imperfections' in the product's finish are characteristic of the creation process. Due to this handmade nature, no two pieces are ever exactly alike.
