The Heart Collection takes its inspiration from the imagery that floats around classic storytelling. Whether the objects are seen individually or as a whole, they evoke a sense of charm and fantasy. Drawing profoundly from Aram’s background as a sculptor, each piece emerges from hand-sculpted clay and offers a child-like quality with an inherent depth of meaning.
“There is such power in narrative images for me. There is a feeling that we’re creating an entire imaginary world, building designs around interactive themes that are familiar to all of us. The shapes are obvious and immediate and, at the same time, impressionistic and lyrical – the way a small child might imagine the scenes in a story he’s being told. These heart vessels are all unique as they are hand forged and cut. There is an individuality to each piece, just as our hearts and expressions of love are different from person to person, from moment to moment. I love the idea of honoring our history with someone as much as our present and our futures. There is a beauty in paying homage not only to what came before at the same time as dreaming of what lies ahead, while capturing the celebratory moment you are in. They respresent Then, Now, and Forever!”
