Forest Leaf Salad Plate
The Forest Leaf 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. Each piece is an intimate expression of Aram's individual creativity as well as an object of infinite and timeless meaning.
These pieces were inspired from a hiking trip. I noticed the soft cushion created by the fallen leaves in the forest. It was gentle, fragrant and pliant, almost as if it had been put there just for me. What I enjoy about the Forest Leaf pieces is that in a way they are 'slices' of nature, small vignettes of the forest. I also love the contract of the top and bottom surfaces of leaves themselves. They speak of duality in all its incarnations: yin and yang, Ganga and Yamuna, dark and light."
