The Michael Aram Pomegranate Nut Bowl is made of hammered stainless steel in the shape of a pomegranate and has oxidized bronze stem foliage, just the right size for nuts and other snacks.
The Pomegranate Collection takes its inspiration from the intricacies of form and texture found in foliage from around the world.
For me, the shapes conjure a sense of freshness and fragility. At the same time the textures represent a metaphor for life itself ... growth, vitality, pulsation. Pomegranates are a symbol of eternity, fertility, and plenty. It is an age old image which crosses cultures and transcends time. It is as beautiful as a sculptural object, standing empty, as it is as a functional piece.
