7.75" Diam. x 9"H
Black Nickelplate, Stainless Steel

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.

Care Instructions: Not recommended for the dishwasher. Hand wash with a soft sponge, mild soap, and water. Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring pads that can scratch and dull metal surfaces. Do not soak, even in plain water, or leave unwashed overnight. Dry with a soft cloth to avoid spotting and pitting. As with all metals, never place in microwave oven.

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.

"I am intrigued by the striking, deep textures created through the hand forging process. In a way, they are evocative of the early 20th Century architecture seen in New York City in landmarks such as the Empire State and Chrysler buildings. Everything from the exterior to the elevator doors, radiator covers, and stairwells are reminiscent of that beautiful aesthetic and monumental moment in time. To me, the collection feels masculine but still universal."
