Michael Aram Fine Porcelain was designed to reflect the way we entertain today - incorporating comfort and ease without sacrificing grace and detail. It's about the casualization of formal and the formalization of casual. Constructed of porcelain, our dinnerware is sturdy enough for everyday use.

The Butterfly Ginkgo Collection celebrates the representation of flora as fauna. Michael's fascination with a particular type of ginkgo tree, the ginkgo Biloba, or "Butterfly ginkgo", which grows with a double leaf reminiscent of a butterfly's wings, gave rise to a fantasia image of the plant. Executed at the highest level of handcraftsmanship, each piece is rendered in solid brass with etched cocoon-shaped vessels. The pieces in the collection are a tour de force of Indian craft and capture the poetic spirit that is so deeply indicative of Michael's work.
"The first time I saw this tree, it literally looked like it had been completely overtaken by butterflies...as if they would all take flight the moment I walked too close or made a noise. The idea that the leaves could evoke the beauty of butterflies was magical to me, like trees that can metamorphose from flora to fauna in the blink of an eye."
Michael Aram porcelain dinnerware is made of the highest quality. The creation process seamlessly merges the handmade traditions Michael Aram is most known for, with cutting edge technology that results in a high quality, elegant porcelain product. Each piece is shaped and molded along rigorous accuracy standards. The porcelain is fired at 1400ºC, resulting in a white, shiny, resistant surface.
