This utilitarian piece of art by American metalware designer Michael Aram is so wonderful! Comprised of a hot forged, welded, and hand polished stainless-steel frame, feet and handles which has a dimpled effect and surrounds a rectangular piece of black granite. Imperfections in the surface are a natural characteristic of the handmade process. Made in the highest of quality that we have come to expect from Michael Aram. Aram’s designs bridge the gap between artist and artisan letting his pieces shift beautifully between the realm of fine and decorative art. This piece would make a fabulous gift…….even if it is for yourself!
