he Flights of Fancy Collection is a series of unique objects that celebrate whimsy in daily life. Whether seen individually or among other pieces, they evoke a sense of charm and fantasy. Drawing profoundly from Arams 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 are creating an entire dream-like world, building designs around interactive themes that are familiar to all of us. The shapes are obvious and immediate and, at the same time lyrical and full of fantasy- the way we might imagine the scenes in a fairy tale we are being told. The Cat and Mouse is an ongoing story for me. Tired of chasing, the cat has decided to sit this one out, as he still ponders where those mice could be! - Michael Aram
