Michael Aram’s work reflects humanity through the directness of the handmade process, as each piece is lovingly made using old traditional techniques. Having said that, Wall Mirrors Blog decided to showcase the most awe-inspiring and highly aesthetic wall mirror designs created by the designer.
“There is something classical about the motif, but equally charming too. I was inspired by the fact that Coco Chanel used to keep wheat in her home. It was a source of inspiration, a symbol of good luck, and a way of feeling connected to her childhood in the countryside.”
Butterfly Ginkgo Mirror
Celebrating the representation of flora and fauna, this mirror was originated for Aram’s fascination with the particular ginkgo tree. It is executed at the highest level of hand-craftsmanship and rendered in solid brass.

Tree of Life Mirror
This handcrafted mirror is a unique work of art, finished in specialized patination process.
“The Molten Collection represents a way of living, which I really love – streamlined, timeless shapes … objects which reverberate with the skill of their maker and yet do not fit into a traditional interpretation of craft. For me, the pieces possess a soulfulness and organic energy only possible through the handmade process.”
Rock Mirror Goldtone
The Rock Mirror along other pieces from this collection were inspired by jagged-edged stone formations as seen through the combined lenses of Rock and Roll Glam, Cubism, and Art Deco. This mirror has a contemporary feel to it while also referencing past cultural and artistic movements.
“The structure of the sunflower is complex, with its sharp petals and twisted sepals surrounding its geometrically patterned core. I grew sunflowers in my garden last summer and watched the plant from seedling to spent flower. Ironically, the blooms faced my neighbor’s yard as they followed the sun, so I found myself observing the backs of the flowers nearly as much as the blossoms. The process inspired me to consider the darker side of the flower, very much in the spirit of Van Gogh’s versions where he depicted the sunflower’s tortured beauty and perpetual reach for hope.”
Sleepy Hollow Mirror
“To me, there is something so magical about taking small bits of the outdoor world and creating highly interpretive pieces that fill a room with a lasting sense of organic form and texture. I wanted the sculpture to be immediately lovely but with a twist… the branches gnarled and bent and the leaves full of vibration, in order to create something that is almost threateningly beautiful.”
