The Michael Aram Gooseberry Collection was inspired by the delicate beauty found in the naturally decaying foliage of the cape gooseberry. As the fruit matures, the lace-like veining that remains in the outer shell creates ghostly, other-worldly textures and shapes.
"I'm fascinated by the change that this seemingly simple little fruit undergoes in its lifecycle. Although I love the taste of them, what really captures my attention is the casting that is often called a Chinese lantern. I also have a nostalgic association with them. Once a year there is a harvest of cape gooseberries in North India and the streets are full of pushcarts stacked high with bundles of them. It's a joyful image that inspires a sense of hope and enthusiasm."
Michael is highly inspired by his surroundings and often makes sculptures of objects that might otherwise be overlooked in the everyday. Nature is his biggest muse, as is the handmade process.
