The Palm Menorah is inspired by the beauty of a windswept palm tree and the perfectly imperfect shapes of woven palm leaves and fallen fronds. The warm antique gold finish and the intricate sculpted textures exude comfortable luxury and graciousness. Candles not included.

American-born artist and designer Michal Aram says, "I was having lunch with friends on a veranda overlooking the sea when I looked down to the lawn and saw a fallen palm frond. The leaves were all twisted and curled, yet it stood out magnificently against the otherwise perfect landscape. It made me think of the passage of time, and the bountiful gifts of the palm tree, which provides everything from food to shelter."

A life-altering trip to India resulted in Aram discovering rich metalworking traditions. Aram's work reflects humanity through the directness of the handmade process, as each piece is lovingly made using age-old traditional techniques. As a result, each piece is unique.
